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.
Following a recent first aid training course the preschool approached the church suggesting a joint fund raising venture for a community defibrillator, as part of the preschools people and community project for this year. With Coronary Heart Disease remains one of the highest killers in the UK, the church were eager to be involved. The fund raising group strongly believe The Avenue Methodist Church is the perfect site for a community defibrillator. It is situated on the main road through Castlefield, and is five minutes walk from the Local Shops, Primary School, Mosque, Community Centre, Library and Children Centre.
We started the ball rolling with a bring and buy sale during the summer holidays raising £184.50 towards the £2,000 target, for a defibrillator, resuscitation kite and secure store, further donations, and yard sale have taken the total to £467.75. We still have a way to go and have planned other event over the next few months. We really want to get the whole community involved so set up this page to spread the word and to help make donating to this fund raising cause easier. Your contribution no matter how small could be life saving.
