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.
Claire has worked so hard over the last few years and made many personal sacrifices. She goes training every night and plays touch rugby tournaments every weekend.
Now all her hard work has finally paid off and she has been selected to represent England at the 2019 touch rugby world cup in Malaysia.
Unfortunately woman's touch rugby is not a well funded sport and players need to find sponsorship or fund the trip themselves.
Claire estimates the trip will cost in the region of £5000 in total for flights, accommodation, food and kits. She has some personal savings but it would be great if we could all help her out.
She is the most selfless person I know. She is best most supportive friend anyone could ask for. She is an incredible mother. She continually puts herself out for others - she's always organising things for other people and rarely thinks of herself.
We need to help her out!
She won't be happy I've set this up at all! She's far too proud and independent, but she's help out so many people, I can't be the only one who's glad of an opportunity to repay her in a small way.
Donations don't need to be huge, every little helps and a meal in Malaysia us only a couple of pounds.
Thanks everyone 👍
