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.


On New Years Day, Always With A Smile returned to Mappleton to take part in the famous Mappleton NYD Bridge Jump... We've been doing the event for a decade or so, and it's a great way to kick the new year off with a bang...

Unfortunately, things didn't go according to plan, as the camera Joel was holder was dislodged from his hand by the force of the impact. Desperately trying to recover the camera, Joel spent around 20 minutes in the freezing waters trying to locate it, but to no avail.

The camera, the latest GoPro Hero 7, costs £355 from Amazon (as of today), and with the memory card and handle, the cost of a replacement is going to be in excess of £500.

At this time, however, the foundation has no money... and this camera was originally bought with Joel's money for that exact reason. We ask for very little in terms of money from the people who support AWAS, but now is a time where, if you have anything left over from the festivities, we could really do with your help.

If you'd like to support the foundation at this time, we'd be very, very grateful...

      Hope you reach the target in time for the trip next week - would be sad if you can't film your activities for us all to see x
