Weʼre raising £250 to #LiftLoudforDanny

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.


Daniel was destined for great things. He sadly lost his battle with his mental health difficulties on the 17th June 2018. Daniel was loved by so many and touched the lives of hundreds if not thousands of people, friends, family and the Powerlifting community. He was passionate about lifting and had a wealth of skill and knowledge that cannot be replaced. The tributes to Daniel, in their hundreds, have been comforting. In his memory we have launched the #LiftLoudForDanny fund. Our mission is to:

~ Raise awareness of mental health difficulties, especially mental health and autism as Daniel had autism which meant the support he needed had to be more specialised

~ Ensure that specialised support is available for those on the spectrum, including adequate training for mental health teams and schools

~ Ensure that support is there from the earliest opportunity, as too many children and young people hit crisis point before getting support

~ Improve the experience of those that end up in police custody rather than a hospital bed or other safe place

~ Promote the importance of physical activity to improve mental health, recent research has shown that lifting weights has a positive impact similar to running

~ Ensure our gym Mammoth Power Gym is a centre of excellence for positive mental health wellbeing, support and signposting

~ Campaign for a Rapid Response Mental Health Team so those in crisis do not have to spend time in a police cell

The suicide rate for those with autism is 40% higher than the general population. The NAS report that over 70% of those with an ASD diagnosis will have or have had mental health difficulties. Most of these difficulties are apparent by the time they reach 18.

Something has to change, we will make change in Daniel's memory. Lift Loud Daniel, Lift Loud, wherever you are and we will continue to Lift Loud in remembrance of you.

Your broken hearted Mum, Family and Team Mammoth Power
