What is crowdfunding?

Story

Andy* and Stu are doing a Sky Dive on 1st December to raise money for E & A Play, which is a group that hopes to raise both funds and awareness to support children and families living with Childhood Cancer.

The group was set up after our friends' identical twins, Edward and Austin, were both diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). The boys became ill within 7 months of each other - Austin in October 2017 and Edward in May 2018, both aged 2. The course of treatment for boys with ALL is a minimum of 3 years and as a result they are having to spend a lot of their early years in hospital.

Because of their weakened immune systems, the boys often have to spend days on end confined to their treatment room when they visit Medway hospital and cannot use the communal playroom on the children's ward due to risk of infection.

Based on Edward and Austin's experiences, our ultimate goal is to fund a fun, stimulating and safe space for children with cancer to escape the day to day gruel of treatment, away from the confines of their hospital room.

*Andy needs to lose 2.5 stone to be allowed to take part, if he doesn't I will be jumping in his place!!.
