    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    I was diagnosed as being on the Autistic Spectrum when I was 5. Mainstream school was very challenging for me for many reasons and it really had an impact on me as a person.

    One main thing that brightened my world from a very young age is cars! After watching Top Gear when I was 3, I swiftly found a love of sports and super cars and the rest is history. This year I officially launched my car club "Autoism" check out my website Autoism Car Club I am really lucky to have great support. One place that I often visit is the Classic Motor Hub. Much to my delight they offered to host a meet for my car club, knowing that I had a goal to raise money and awareness.

    I am now at a school that I feel much happier in and so I want to help raise funds for them as a thank you. They need extra funds to be able to offer experiences for the pupils, things like a trip to London to see an Art Gallery.

    I also want to raise awareness and the charity that is continually trying to do this is the National Autistic Society and so that is another cause I wish to raise funds for.

    I would really appreciate any donation you are able to give, I know what a difference it will make. Thank you and hope to see you on the 2nd June at the Classic Motor Hub.

      Leon and I (Leon's Mum) are so overwhelmed at everyone's generosity, we have exceeded our target and the page is still being shared! We also are going to be running an eBay auction to sell some items that were generously donated, including a very special 1 of 10 poster from Deacon Blue that has been signed by the band. We are so grateful!
