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.
As some of you know I'm studying Film and TV production at uni so part... well all....of our course is writing and shooting short films, music videos etc. So we're putting on a film premiere/ movie night of all our work from the past 2 years. It will be on August 22nd at World of Glass, St. Helens.
In December 2015 Chris Carberry, then aged 19, was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer called Osteosarcoma. The large tumour was in his left femur (the long leg bone.) Since his diagnosis, Chris has undergone an intense course of chemotherapy at Clatterbridge Cancer Centre prior to having major surgery in Birmingham in March 2016. Unfortunately, the leg could not be saved and Chris had an above knee amputation followed by a further gruelling chemotherapy regime.
Chris was a very active sportsman, playing golf at every opportunity. The target for Chris is to walk, play golf and Ski again-this means having a pretty smart prosthetic leg. Chris' friends and family have started the long process of raising funds towards getting Chris to do just that and hope to use monies raised towards a microprocessor and other aids that will help him to be mobile and enjoy the things he did before Cancer hit.
So tickets will be £5 including popcorn on arrival, then £1 thereafter! All this money will go to Chris Carberry. There will also be a paid bar! So let me know if you're interested!
