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

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 40 young adults and children in 6 years. £500 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.

(The picture above was taken on the 28th Feb 2018 which was -5 Degrees, demonstrating their love for these sessions).

    Thank you for all of the donations so far! I've organised a sponsored walk along the strawberry line from Yatton to Cheddar and back (32km). This is happening on the 28th July with one of our participants, Jordan, taking part and aiming to walk the furthest that he's ever walked, 3 miles!!! The finish line will be at Yatton train station where I plan to organise a BBQ for walkers and supporters in the afternoon. Anyone is welcome to walk or come to the BBQ!! Joe
