Weʼre raising £1,000 to The #10secondstop is raising funds for Georgie’s Gift but also to raise funds to get a toilet built downstairs for Lee Welland #fuckcancer
- 25 days to go
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
All funds raised will be split 3 ways; 1/3 will go to Georgie‘s Gift. 1/3 will go towards getting a toilet built downstairs for Lee Welland who suffers from kidney cancer. The cancer has spread to his hips and has reduced his mobility, making him require crutches to move around. Currently, the only toilet available at his home residence is upstairs and Lee has to climb up on all fours. Various quotes on having the toilet built average at around £1000. 1/3 will go towards the winner/s of the #10secondstop competition.

1/ Two people visible on video (one to hold timer, one in background behind the timer)
2/ Timer must countdown 3,2,1,Go and the timer starts on the GO!
3/ The player in the background must have eyes shut, count 10 seconds on their head and shout stop for the timer to stop the stopwatch. If the timer is stopped exactly on 10 seconds dead (10:00), this is a winning attempt.
4/ The winner/s will share a third of the money raised (e.g. If a total of £300 was raised, and there was only one winner, they would receive £100. If there was there was two winners, they would receive £50 each). A third of the money raised goes to Georgie’s Gift and a third to the toilet build.
5/ The result must be filmed and shared to the #10secondstop facebook page and the stopwatch must be in full view on the video. If using a smart phone, ensure the phone is in full view with no cables plugged in whilst the attempt is being recorded.
A minimum donation of £2 per attempt is recommended on the justgiving page. Please be honest and use your first filmed attempt. Upload the video to the #10secondstop facebook page and you must nominate a friend to take part during the video, giving them 48 hours to respond with their attempt!
Good Luck! #fundraising #fun #fuckcancer #meningitisawareness
The competition will start on Sunday 9th December and run for two weeks until 9pm on Sunday 23rd December.
