    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.


    John was a well respected colleague whose passing has left us all shocked and saddened. He was a very generous person and was always happy to pass on his knowledge and help others.
    I'm planning to walk the West Highland Way 96 miles starting on Friday 8th September and any money raised will go towards a fitting memorial in John's memory on behalf of his friends and colleagues. I'm meeting all costs of the walk myself so all money raised will go directly towards the memorial fund. If we exceed the target then any extra cash will be donated to a cancer charity of the Stewart family's choosing.

    I had the pleasure of working with John for 12 years and car shared with him for last 5 years. During that time Jane Naysmith, David Farrell, Omar Hussein and Ian Colligan were all car share buddies and we shared some good laughs.
