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.

After the success of the 2017 Charity Judo Tournament, I am now starting to put things together for next years competition. The date and venue will be The Newport Centre in Wales and will be on 14-15 of July. The purpose of this campaign is to raise money and awareness for a horrible disease.
Aged just 24, Jamie MacDonald, who had competed in judo at the Commonwealth Games, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. Since then he has worked tirelessly to raise the profile of those who have similar conditions.
Sadly on Sunday 12th November 2017 Jamie lost his battle with cancer and passed away.
Jamie was a young man who is well known in the British Judo community and well liked and I hope to build on the success of 2017s competition into an annual event into a legacy event that will not only serve as a fitting memory to Jamie but also to raise vital funds and awareness.
Last year we had over 170 entries and raised almost £1200. If you feel that you are in a position to donate whatever you can please do so. Last years event was a great day and I'm hoping going forward next years Will be bigger and better. Thank you for taking the time to read this and supporting a worthwhile cause
