    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.


    On Sunday 27 November, Charlotte is fundraising for Jack, a young friend of ours who has celebral palsy, is blind and has epilepsy. Even though Jack has more challenges to face than most, we enjoy a fantastic camping holiday with Jack, his big brother Connor, their parents and a group of our oldest friends each year. It's wonderful to see all our children growing up together and having fun with Jack.

    Charlotte was determined to find a suitably big challenge! She is going to swim 800 metres for Jack - that's 32 lengths, which is nearly twice as far as she's ever swum before! We'll all be in the pool with her, cheering her along.

    Jack's mum Sam says that a pair of specially made shorts with splints would help Jack's sleep at night, which is great news. If she raises enough, Charlotte would like to get football-crazy Connor a treat too, as he is so kind, patient and supportive to his little brother.

    Thank you for supporting Charlotte and for helping Jack, Connor, Sam & Paul - they're a truly amazing family xxx

      You've all left the Bessers speechless for once! We can't believe how kind and generous you've all been. This money is going to such a good cause - and will be used very wisely by Jack's family. Thank you all for helping us to help them. Charlotte is walking 10 foot tall at the moment, it's wonderful to see xxx

      Not content with swimming, Charlotte was adamant that she wanted to sponsor herself, and send herself a message of support too: 'Don't give up! You can do this! Believe in yourself!' My Jedi mind tricks are working on her!!
