    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.


    The Barvas and Brue Youth Cafe are organising a soup and pudding fundraiser on 30th September at the Barvas Hall, starting at 12:00. The money raised will go towards supporting the Macleod family.

    Below is a little information about beautiful Catherine from her family and what she is going through, as you will read she sill has a long journey ahead of her and we as a community are looking to show our support. We are setting up this page for anyone who cannot attend the fundraiser but wants to donate money.

    On 2 May 2017 after taking our 6 month old baby girl to the doctor as a rash had appeared on her body we were given the devastating news that our little Catherine has acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). She was admitted to hospital immediately and started on intense chemotherapy. She has now been in the Glasgow Royal Hospital for Children for 4 months and it looks like we will be here for a further 2-3 months with outpatient daycare treatment for 2-3 years after she gets home. She needs regular blood transfusions as the chemotherapy kills all the good and bad blood cells. Catherine has just completed her 3rd Round of chemotherapy and within 2-3 weeks we will find out if she requires a bone marrow transplant. Catherines big sister Emily is not allowed to visit because Catherine is at high risk of infection which has been very hard as Emily misses her little sister terribly. Catherine is doing amazingly well considering everything her wee body is going through and we couldn't be prouder of our little fighter and her big sister!
