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 a teen-ager, I was the inter county under 14 champion of connect 4, a Northern pastime that is older than chess and requires greater cunning and skill.
The game has fallen out off favour in recent times but thanks to the Nook and Cranny in Bromley Cross there is now a keen youth participation, particularly amongst my numerous offspring.
My dream is to re-establish the Bolton League but there is a problem.
Not all of the customers hold this game in respect and the frame at The Nook and Cranny is now broken alongside 6 counters lost by drunken patrons :-(
I am trying to raise enough money to buy 2 new sets of Connect 4 and retire the current counters as well needed spares.
I think Connect 4 would be a great way to channel our youths misdirected energy as opposed to snowballing pensioners or hanging out in the co-op to access the free WiFi.
