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.

7 year old Amelia became ill in the first week of the school summer holidays in 2017 while attending a playscheme. Her leg ‘gave way’ beneath her and it began to swell.
On Amelia’s seventh birthday last August, a biopsy revealed that she had an aggressive high grade tumour which had not shrunk after two rounds of chemotherapy. Amelia and her parents were told that her leg would need to be amputated.
Amelia underwent surgery in January and a recent scan has shown that the bones are fusing together well.
We want to help Amelia with her fundraising. Her target is £30,000, this will ensure Amelia can have a specially-made ‘blade’, like those used by Jonny Peacock on Strictly Come Dancing, one of Amelia’s favourite shows.
