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.


We are aware that Arro's young friends are in shock and are grieving for his loss. They don't have much support and don't really know what to with these huge feelings (who does really?). We are feeling strongly to reach out to them, to show them that we care about them, and in some way help them with this process by being together.

Our idea is to take them away on a weekend trip where they can all be together in a different environment and also do something outdoorsy and physical. We have hired a bunkhouse in the Forest of Dean for the w/e of November 16-18. On the Saturday we plan to go to 'Go Ape' then in the evening go to the local pub for a meal.

The funds raised will be to pay for: minibus hire, bunkhouse, meals, Go Ape, 'Landyzone' has already donated £1800 but we need about another £1000 to fund this trip.

In April next year we plan to take them on a weekend canoe/camping trip on the River Wye. Nick (Arro's step-dad) is a canoe instructor and has a fleet of canoes and all the kit, hence the only expenses will be transport, food, and camping fees. This comes to about £1500.

We would also like to plan a trip for September 2019, in rememberence of him.

Our long term vision is to to involve his friends in fundraising to support on going events for them and potentially for other vulnerable young people.

      This money was donated by others towards expenses around the funeral offer, and is the balance remaining.
