Meet Charlotte Timpson who decided to run the Brighton Marathon on April 10th to help fundraise for Little Hiccups.
Charlotte isn’t even one of our families. But is instead, a friend to one of our families. And what a friend! Charlotte decided to run 26.2 miles to help raise funds for Little Hiccups. A marathon takes hours of training so it wasn’t just the race on the day, it was the many hours spend beforehand in preparation.
Charlotte says “The reason I chose little hiccups was to support an amazing charity who have given so much help and support to so many families around Leeds and in particular the lovely Eaton-Cartwright family who are very good friends of mine.”
Brighton Marathon was held on April 10th and was a grueling 26.2 miles in a bustling, vibrant and colourful city, which welcome thousands of spectators and local community each year. And at the end of it, Charlotte managed to complete it in 4 hours and 24 minutes and at the time of writing, has raised a fantastic £1035 for Little Hiccups!
Thank you Charlotte!
Are you thinking of running a race? Little Hiccups has some tips for fundraising:
- Set Up an Online Fundraising Page. If you are raising for us, we have everything set up on our Fundraising Page. You just need to click on the links to get started.
- Fully Explain Your Cause. Explain about your chosen charity, fundraising goal and the significance for you.
- Let them know when your race is. Consider for example how much more compelled you are to make a donation to a worthy cause if you know that there is a deadline quickly approaching. By giving people a specific end date, you create a sense of urgency, and you also help them budget.
- Share your fundraising page. Share, share and share again. Not everyone will pick it up the first or even second time.
- Every penny counts. If you raise £10, £100 or even £10,000 – we are grateful!
