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.


I am so honoured to have been chosen along with 2 amazing team mates, Connor Lynes & Ben Nicholson to represent Wakefield Trinity PDRL & England PDRL in Australia to play for the Gold Coast Titans PDRL team.

It’s been a life long dream of mine to play in Australia and now the dream is coming true.

I was told 17yrs ago after being diagnosed with leaukaemia I won’t be playing rugby league anymore.

A part of me died that day.

I’ve been searching for more than a decade a way to play rugby league with bi-lateral total hip replacements and avascular necrosis of my shoulders too. Wheelchair rugby wasn’t possible so there was nothing.

I signed for Wakefield Trinity PDRL (physical disability rugby league). I feel like a part of me has been re-born and Im giving it everything I can physically do.

All the dreams I had over the past decade have come true which I never could forsee happening......

I’ve put a rugby shirt on, got out on that field and make all them dreams come true!

Rugby League is not just a sport. If you love it as much as I do it becomes a part of you, your life and I’ve got that opportunity to play again the game I love!

I must thank Craig Shepherd a manager at Wakefield Trinity Community Trust for all his selfless help and support this year making this fantastic dream for us 3 come true.

Wakefield Trinity Community Trust is a charity.

We are looking for any charitable donations towards the cost of our trip if at all possible by the public.
