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.


My Dad Brian, has been such an inspiration to me, and all his friends he has worked with, in the police service. He gave so much time to help everyone he met. For nearly 30 years he has given his spare time supporting rugby union, were he has nurtured new aspiring players through to cup winning glory. He is a father figure to all the players he's helped. He gave so much.

In 2015 and in 2016, a proud supporter of the armed forces, Brian successfully organised two charity rugby union match in support of wounded veterans, service personnel and their families.

We want to keep his memories alive and help someone in the process.
