    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.

    Story

    As part of my captaincy at the Celtic Manor Golf Club I have the chance to raise funds across the year, and I have selected 2 wonderful organisations to support:

    The first is Newport MIND (www.newportmind.org ). 1 in 4 people will be impacted by mental health problems in their life. My two sons have both known people their age who committed suicide in the last few years and it is heart-breaking when you hear of these cases.

    Newport MIND are there to help people who may be in a situation where they are considering this and need somebody to talk to.

    Based in Commercial Street, they are focused on helping people who may be affected and I hope whatever we raise can help MIND assist local people in addressing this.

    My second is an organisation called Size of Wales (www.sizeofwales.org.uk ).

    ‘An area the size of Wales’ is frequently used to measure the rate of deforestation, forest fires, oils spills etc – always a negative association. Imagine the entire Celtic Manor resort and multiply that by 1,000 times – that is the size of Wales. Approximately 2,000,000 hectares or rugby pitches!

    Thanks to the brilliant support of the Welsh people (and others!), the charity successfully reached the target of helping to protect forests the “size of Wales” in 2013, and since have worked towards doubling that.

    Any money we raise will help support them in their environmental work across the globe as well education and support in schools here in Wales.

    THE GREAT NEWS IS I HAVE SECURED MATCHED FUNDING FROM THE WATERLOO FOUNDATION IN CARDIFF UP TO £20,000 - SO EVERY £1 WE RAISE WILL GET DOUBLED!!

    Lewis is attempting his first ever half marathon to help raise funds so please support him and remember every £1 is doubled. We are already over £7,500 so that means both charities will get that same amount. Help us get to £10,000!
