    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.

    Story

    UPDATED: Martyn and Kate are dear friends to us all. Martyn is due to have surgery before christmas on a tumour in his head. (fondly named 'Chewbacca') They are facing this in true Cooper form with a smile and their characteristic sense of humour.
    We are overwhelmed that we have almost doubled the initial target and would like to thank everyone who has contributed so far from the top and bottom of our hearts.
    It's not too late to add your support.. Please keep sharing this link to continue to raise enough money to help them through this time and forward into the new year while Martyn recovers and cannot work.
    We would like to ensure that finances are one less thing to worry about. Please help in any way you can. Thank you.

      The money forwarded from the crowd fund means the new wood burner is in and the hot water system is being checked.. Kate says... 'Eek's diabetes is being awkward BUT they're getting under control and he's going to be on insulin for the foreseeable. He' will be seen by the neurosurgeon on Tuesday, the detailed MRI just confirmed that Chewbacca is in a bloody awkward place. His left leg has taken on a life of its own and goes for a boogie when he tries to stand!! Once he's up, it settles down but it's funny nonetheless! thank you x'

      Wow!! Just WOW!!! you are amazing and wonderful people!! Over 200 supporters and we've almost doubled the initial target!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Kate has told me that she hopes to get the heating fixed in the boat, so they will have a warm place for Martyn to come back to after his surgery, and the mooring fees should be less of a worry. It's not too late if you would like to support this.. We have 26 days still to run.. Please keep sharing and hopefully we will hit at least £6000.. Thank you.. x

Thank you from the top and bottom of my heart. X claire

      Can this page be kept open for a year, I'm sure we could all afford a little each month?
