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 charity.

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


Gareth Phillips is a police officer with West Midlands Police.

On Saturday 10th August he attended an incident where it had been reported that a car had been stolen. During this incident Gareth was knocked down and driven over while trying to arrest one of the suspected thieves. This caused Gareth to sustain very serious injuries. He is now in intensive care having already had two emergency operations. He faces a very long road to recovery, which will include further operations and extensive rehabilitation. This Just Giving page has been set up by colleagues to raise money to support Gareth and his family through the difficult times that are to follow. The support that Gareth and his family have received from the public has been overwhelming and they have taken great strength from this. Many thanks to everyone for your love and support.
