    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.


    Gary is a chimney sweep. He fell from a roof last September. He awoke in hospital 6 weeks later. He won't be able to walk again and his vision is seriously impaired. He is currently going through a very tough and slow period of rehabilitation to try to move toward independent living. He'll need specialised equipment to help improve the quality of his life.
    There has already been some fundraising for Gary and thanks to all who have helped so far. This campaign will make a huge difference.

      Thank you to all who have taken time and effort to donate. Every donation, large or small sends an important message of support to Gary and family. Big thanks for donations from trade suppliers, well done. I tried to contact Gary yesterday, will try again. Best, Lawson Wight

    I am David Wooffindin , Training director with the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps. I helped with Gary's initial training and knew him to be an excellent chimney sweep, knowledgeable, with a real passion for his job. He can no longer walk. He can't see properly. See Gary's story.
