    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

    It is with great sadness that we are setting this page up, in loving memory of our amazing, caring and fun husband, father, brother and uncle, Colin Rodgers, who was suddenly taken from us on 1st February whilst playing football despite the efforts of Redcar Leisure centre staff, paramedics and ambulance crew.

    We, his family, politely request that instead of sending flowers to his service, anyone who wishes to do so, makes a donation to help us raise funds for a great cause
    .
    Colin has always been an avid runner and took part in the Redcar Parkrun along with his sons who all attended Coatham Primary School. Although medical staff could not save Colin, it is evidence to how crucial defibrillators can be in community places in the hope that one day they can save a life in the time it takes for emergency services to respond. With this in mind, your donations will be used to help purchase Portable Defibrillators for both Redcar Parkrun and Coatham C of E Primary School.

    Sandra, Oliver, Jacob & Nick.

      Thank you so much to everyone who has donated in Dad's memory, we can't believe we have reached our original target in only a matter of hours. This money will cover the remaining money needed by Redcar Parkrun and Coatham School to buy their defibrillators. Any further donations will go towards further machines for other local causes. Many Thanks, The Rodgers Family
