Weʼre raising £1,000 to Raise funds for a local gymnastics club, to leave a legacy in my Dads name.
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.
Completely out of the blue last October we lost my Dad. He wasn't ill, he was there one minute and not the next. After his funeral we asked for people to donate to his grand kids gymnastic club to raise funds for the below bit of kit. The collection did well - but believe it or not this bit of kit cost £2300.00.
I want to raise enough funds to buy this bit of kit outright, leave a lasting legacy in my Dads name. I hope it will inspire his grandchildren and many many more,
Over this year I have been running 5km, 10km, and an 11 mile castle to castle run to raise more funds for the gym. As many of you know this unit isn't really built for road running, but its giving it a go.
Whatever you can give however small I will be so grateful for.
