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.


Earlier this year i visited Zimbabwe, during my visit i decided to do a skydive jump to celebrate my 80th birthday with Skydiving Tandem Company. I completed the jump with a lovely young man called Ofir, it was a fabulous experience and he was there to help and guide me through each step. Last month i sadly heard that Ofir had tragically passed away from drowning after getting into difficulty below the Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River.

I have decided in memory of Ofir to complete a 100m abseil off the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth to raise funds for RLSS Boscombe Lifeguards a local Royal Lifesaving Society volunteer Lifeguard and Rescue Boat Unit who as well active patrols and event safety covers, carry out and promote water safety training and spread the word of being safe around water and what to do if you get in to difficulty. By supporting the work they do i hope this will help prevent further tragedies of young persons loosing their lives in the water.

      Very brave Janet! What next!? I bet 80 years old and you’ll still be in the sea with no wetsuit! Good luck! Thankyou for all you’ve done for the lifesaving world!
