    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

    My dad is the chairman of a small charity called Active and In Touch, Frome.

    The charity works with isolated and lonely individuals in and around Frome. The charities volunteers visit, help and befriend people who have become isolated or out of touch with the community around them, connecting them to vital services to improve their quality of life. The charity has a growing bank of around 40 volunteers directly working with over 80 individuals. The impact of this work in a rural environment is stark.

    Donate now to give one more person a stepping stone out of isolation.

    The Charity needs £6,500 by the end of March 2018 in order to secure their work for 2018-2019. Every little will help!!!

    -------------------------------------------------------

    On a side note: My dad is one of the most inspirational people I know. He has terminal cancer and amidst trips to the hospital he has been volunteering for Active and In Touch supporting various isolated old people in Frome with weekly visits, helping them with their medical care, keeping them connected and not experiencing the effects of isolation and neglect and finding their place in the community. He also took on the responsibility of forming the charity, raising funds etc.

    I'm fundraising to support this amazing man and to support Active and In Touch so that they can help more isolated people. I think we all recognise that loneliness and isolation are big problems in society. Not everyone has the time to volunteer to help others, but I hope maybe you can spare a few pounds to go towards this good cause.

      Thank you to all who have donated. Natalie and I have completed the run, really proud of us especially given the headwind on the closing straight thanks to Storm Brian! A great, windy day running with thousands of other runners for lots of charities. I'm proud to support Active & In Touch Frome.

      All ready for tomorrow - hoping the wind is behind me all the way. Thanks for the donations so far almost there for the £1000 target - I've got some cash donations to add in but any more pounds you could spare would be great!

      I'm running the Great South Run on Sunday 22nd October. A 10 mile race around Portsmouth. My aim: to hit £1000 fundraising for Active and In Touch SPREAD THE WORD Fingers crossed I'll be joined by my wonderful friend Natalie. Six months ago she fractured her ankle. She has been training & if she makes it around she deserves as much money as you give. It would be a huge achievement, I love her for even trying. Friendship its what A&IT is all about!!!!!!!
