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.
Myself and my team would like to swim across the channel in aid of the Jubilee Sailing Trust. Some of our team members will be going on that voyage to help those with disabilities make some incredible memories. They, unfortunately, can't go on this voyage without raising enough money to do so. Therefore we intend to use this channel crossing as a platform to raise enough money to send the volunteers out to their respective voyages.
The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) is an international, United Nations accredited disability charity, promoting integration through the challenge and adventure of tall ship sailing.
They provide life-changing adventures to people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of physical ability. Their voyages change lives by improving self-esteem, building confidence, and providing fantastic leadership and life skills.
The JST takes both disabled and able-bodied men and women to sea, to not only teach them how to crew a tall ship, but to promote equality, sharing, and to celebrate our individual differences by working together to achieve greater things.
The safety boat and pilot will cost in the region of £2,500 for the crossing therefore to lessen the burden of this we kindly ask for your generosity in helping us achieve our goal and thus enabling us to help others.
Thank you for your consideration.
