Byron’s Fantastic Fundraisers - Dec 2018

  • At Localgiving we like to highlight the inspirational challenges individual fundraisers carry out for our amazing charities and community groups. Every month I (Byron,Localgiving’s Membership Coordinator and helpline guy) will be picking out some of the very best active fundraisers on the platform.

    Here are some of the most inspiring causes and fundraising appeals we have seen this month:

    Tonic Music for Mental Health - Wings of Dub

    Is it a bird? is it a plane? No, it's Barry (of Dub Pistols fame)! 

    Barry Ashworth  is strapping himself in, and walking the wing for Tonic Music for Mental Health. They'll be no 'winging it' though; Barry is aiming to raise £2000 for this life-changing cause. Best of luck from all of us at Localgiving!

    Tonic Music for Mental Health's goal is to challenge stigma and promote recovery through Music & Art. They are a passionate team that understand the problems people with mental illness face.

     

    The Life Project (Bath) Dead Men Walking (South West Coastal Path)

    Andy, Bill, Steve are about to embark on quite the journey. They team are walking 629 & 3/4 miles - which is no mean feat for three men with a combined age of 246, as well as a heart op and a cancer op between them. Roll over Mo Farah!

     

    The Life Project (Bath)’s aim is for people with learning disabilities to love life! They offer daytime activities and drop in days for parents at Southside Youth Centre, as well as days for adults at the Old Acorn Barn in Englishcombe. They also offer various social activities, two fellowship groups and retreat days for parent carers. Homes for life are part of their plans for the future.

     

     

    Charlotte & Craig Saving Hearts Foundation

    A massive well done to all of the MMA fighters that took part in the Charity fight last month. They have raised thousands of pounds between them for the Charlotte & Craig Saving Hearts Foundation.

    Charlotte & Craig Saving Hearts Foundation works in helping sufferers of vascular EDS. Their aim is to provide access to defibrillators throughout the West Midlands. They have already saved four lives and with the money raised and are hoping to save more.
