Featured Fundraiser: Ulrika Ellis

10/05/2011

This week’s featured fundraiser is Ulrika Ellis. She has raised £355 so far in aid of The British Heart Foundation.

Ulrika was quite a lazy person, she was never a fan of exercise and especially not running, but one day this all changed. Ulrika’s friend Sara gave birth to her daughter, Lily and shortly after she was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. (more…)

Featured Fundraiser: Stephen Mahon

15/04/2011

This week’s featured fundraiser is Stephen Mahon, who has raised over £740 in just 4 days for Children’s International Summer Villages.

Stephen is being sponsored to run coast to coast along the route of Hadrian’s Wall, that’s 85 miles which he hopes to complete in just 3 days.

Children’s International Summer Villages (North East) is a charity that brings children together from across the globe in month-long summer camps. It is a valuable experience in mixing with a range of cultures and backgrounds.

Featured Fundraiser: Team GAR

01/04/2011
Zorba

This week our featured fundraiser is Team GAR, made up of Paul Loader and Linda Blampied, who are running the Brighton Marathon this month for the Greek Animal Rescue charity. GAR was founded in 1989 after Paul and his wife saw the appalling neglect of animals when on holiday in Crete.

They are hoping to raise £5,000 to continue to alleviate the suffering of animals in Greece and to support a number of animal shelters sterilising as many dogs and cats as funds allow, while finding homes for the lucky few in the UK and other EU countries.

Zorba was the first dog GAR sent out to the UK to find a new home, who spent most of his time at Northvale vets. So much so that he became part of the family whilst having his chemotherapy.

Northdale Vets became more and more interested in helping Greek dogs, offering long-distance diagnosis from photographs and X-rays. Also sending vets to Greece for a week at a time to undertake sterilisations and assist with surgeries.

Unfortunately Zorba lost his battle against cancer 10 December 2010. When he died Zorba’s Legacy’ was born – a fund set up by the vets in his memory to continue to raise funds to give other Greek dogs their chance to come to a forever home in England.

Everyclick would like to wish Paul and Linda the best of luck in the marathon and hope they reach their target of £5,000 to continue their amazing work and passion for the Greek Animal Shelter.

Featured Fundraiser: Bertrand Olivier

18/03/2011


This week our featured fundraiser is Bertrand Olivier, an inspiration to us all, over the past three years Bertrand has collectively raised over £12,000 for charity by running the London Marathon.

He was a featured fundraiser back in 2010, when he raised over £7,451, an Everyclick record, for a new medical and eye hospital facility.

This year Bertrand has set a target to raise £10,000 for The Friends of Julius and Dora Childrens Centre, Maseno, for which he is a trustee. With the money he hopes to complete an orphanage for Kenyan children.

“There is an overwhelming need for places for either orphaned or abandoned children in Kenya and the Friends of Julius and Dora Centre Charity raises funds in the UK to bring hope to a few.”

In just 66 donations Betrand has already raised a staggering £2736 for his fourth marathon, which he hopes to complete in 3h42m or less. Everyclick wish him all the best and hope he raises the much needed money to complete the orphanage.

Featured Fundraiser: Tilly Wiltshire

11/03/2011

This week we have nominated Jo and Karla Wiltshire as featured fundraisers, they raised £2,680 from 37 kind donations in just one week and that figure is still increasing!

The money is being raised in memory of their daughter Tilly, who sadly died at the age of five and a half months, from a very rare disease called Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. Only 1 in 200,000 children are affected by LCH and the disease is so rare that very little research is done into its causes and treatment.

Jo and Karla are donating all of the funds raised to The Histiocytosis Research Trust, so that they can improve the chances of other sufferers of LCH surviving in the future. We would like to say well done to Jo and Karla for raising so much money for this good cause.

Featured Fundraiser: Reamonn Gormley

18/02/2011

This week, our featured fundraisers are a group of Celtic supporters from Celtic Quick News who are remembering Reamonn Gormley.

19 year old Reamonn was tragically murdered in Blantyre on Tuesday 1st February while on his way home after watching Celtic vs. Aberdeen at a local pub.

Before setting off to University, Reamonn travelled to Thailand and taught English at the Good Child Foundation (See photo above). This charity has the only school offering placements to children of all ages and abilities including pupils with Downs Syndrome.

At the time of print, his fundraising page has raised £14,812.01 in just 7 days, thanks to kind donations from 558 people that want to help to remember Reamonn.

All monies will be donated to the Good Child Foundation via the Celtic Charity Fund, on behalf of the Celtic support and in memory of the young man. Ami Smith was in Reamonn’s class at John Ogilvie High School in Hamilton.

Ami, 19, said: “He was the loveliest guy. Reamonn never had any enemies, he was friends with everyone.”

Featured Fundraisers: J.Richardson & A.Perry

14/01/2011

Jessica Richardson and Ann Perry are this weeks featured fundraisers after raising over £1,375 for their charity.

On the 28th of this month, they begin their sponsored event and fly off to Tanzania to attempt to tackle the world’s highest freestanding mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. Once they set off, it will take them around 7 days to complete.

They are raising money in memory of Patrick Cody. His family have been raising money for Cherry Trees School in Wombourne, so both Jessica and Ann are following suit so that the pupils can benefit even further from online donations.

With just 8% off their fundraising target of £1,500 and exactly two weeks until they begin their trek, we are confident that both ladies can surpase their fundraising goal.

The group run is on behalf of the League of Friends of the John Taylor Hospice who work with the sick, disabled and handicapped at the Hospice. They are hoping to raise £2,000 and are three-quarters of the way to their goal.

Cricket for Hope

05/10/2010

In the last week, Cricket for Hope have smashed Everyclick’s fundraising records, raising over £22,000 in the past week.

No cause has ever risen so much, so quickly, so congratulations are in order!

They are holding a charity cricket tournament on the 8th of October at Lord’s Cricket Ground, in aid of the victims of the Pakistan flood crisis with money raised going toward the Imran Khan Flood Relief Fund

Cricketing legend Imran Khan, Essex captain and cricketer James Foster and Pakistan fast bowler M Akram are all due to attend.

The Imran Khan Relief Fund Charity uses all donations to relieve the suffering to the people who have had their lives impacted by the floods in Pakistan, which currently stands at an estimated 20+ million.

These people have lost their homes and livelihoods and the infrastructure has also been destroyed, including roads, bridges and buildings.

So far they have managed to raise 15% of their £150,000 target. Bravo to the fundraising team and keep up the great work!
