    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Five intrepid, daring stunt men and women from Dawn Meats are throwing themselves out of a perfectly good plane on Friday 28th April to raise money for charity. The five of us will be completing a tandem skydive from 15,000ft and, despite suggestions, we will be doing it with fully functioning parachutes!

    We are raising funds for the Kingfisher Trust Café and Children in Need.

    The Kingfisher Trust Café is the nominated charity of Dawn Carnaby and supports the homeless of Bridlington by providing hot meals as well as other practical and emotional support. One of our daredevils, Claire Renton, has already spent Christmas day cooking and serving dinner to the guests of the Kingfisher Café and also organised a number of fundraising events to help get them a new oven. The café is run solely by volunteers and they rely on donations and the goodwill of the local community to keep the doors open; hopefully our efforts will ease the financial pressure and allow them to concentrate on helping those who really need their support.

    Most of us have heard of Children in Need but that does not make it any less important. The grants that have been received in our area have been well-deserved and much appreciated by the recipients including Go Kids Go in Beverley and the Castaway Shipmates project in Goole.

    We plan to split the funds raised between the two charities, both of which are close to our hearts. In a world where every other advert is asking for a charitable donation, we ask that you please consider us and dig deep for our worthwhile causes.

      So, our first page expired after 30 days so this is take 2! So far we have managed to raise around £1,300 so still a bit to go.
