    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.

    Story

    In 2012 professional golfer Alan Johnston began running a group for children and young adults who are on the Autistic Spectrum or have Cerebral Palsy to give them the opportunity to learn to play golf. AJ, who is Tickenham Golf Club's PGA coach, is assisted by myself (far right) and Luke Drower (3rd from left).

    Many of them have really developed from this both in terms of their golfing ability and their confidence as a young adult. Some of them even play as much golf as they can outside of these sessions!

    This is a voluntary run scheme which up until February 2018 received funding from Sportivate, a £56 million lottery funded scheme that gives young people the chance to discover a sport that they love. Funding has now been stopped meaning unless funds can be raised, these great people will no longer get the chance to develop their sporting abilities and socialise with others in a similar situation.

    So far this group has helped over 50 young adults and children in 7 years. £600 would allow this group to continue running for over 6 months.

    Even a small donation of just £5 will certainly be appreciated!

    Thank you for taking time to read this.

      So after the success of last year's walk and the funds we manage to raise, we've decided to do another one this year. On the 3rd August 2019 we shall be walking a 'Marathon' or in other words, 26.2 miles! We have raised a fantastic £3,100 up to now but these funds don't last forever and in order for us to keep the group going through 2020, we need to raise more. We have a target of £600 for this year's walk and we hope we hit that. Everyone was very generous last year but if anyone is willing, please donate again! Joe
