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.



We're supporting 'Danuary 12th', a fundraising event to raise money for the DB12 Foundation charity set up in memory of Danny Beal. The Foundation is registered with the Charity Commission in England & Wales registered charity number 1178040.

On January 12th 2018, we're asking people all over the country to go out and have a drink in Danny's memory. Even if you're doing Dry January, give yourself a night off and have one drink in your favourite bar. All we ask is that having bought your drink, you make a matched donation to our campaign. So if you pay £2.50 for your pint, you donate £2.50 to the foundation as well.

This year, we're inviting sports teams to make Danuary 12th part of their after-match recreations by Buying Your Opponent ABeer4Danny. We're counting on the support of the #RugbyFamily in particular who are known for their willingness to imbibe after games - don't let us down, lads and lasses!


Danny died on 21st June 2017 aged 12. In his short life he achieved so much, especially on the rugby field where he played with distinction for 8 years at Huddersfield RUFC, and as captain of his age group at Crossley Heath School in Halifax. To his team-mates and peers he was an inspiration, a leader, a role model and a ‘legend’ as well as a great friend. His teachers and sports coaches spoke of his kindness, his positive attitude and his integrity.

Talking to his rugby team-mates, it became clear that many wished to continue to follow Danny’s example, and the idea of ‘Doing It For Danny’ was born. The DB12 Foundation is a registered charity that exists to keep Danny’s spirit alive, by engaging with primary and secondary school students through sport, and using this as a vehicle for sharing the values that made Danny what he was. In this way, supported by focused mentoring and leadership development, we aim to effect a positive shift in students’ approach to learning, improving outcomes in the classroom as well as on the sports field.
