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.


Dave Hollingsworth was a firefighter and station commander for 25years when he underwent what should have been a straight forward operation to help him with migraines, unfortunatly his operation resulted in him having a couple of strokes leaving him disabled, unable to work again and having to give up the career he loved, requiring 24 hour care from his wife. Unable to get any help to adapt their home and no option of moving home, Dave struggles to live in comfort in his own home with the basic things we all take for granted. After meeting Daves wife and learning their story I decided I want to do everything I can to help this local hero who dedicated 25 years of his life to saving and helping others in need.

I am taking part in this years Total Warrior in Leeds along with my sister in law and looking for anyone who would like to sponsor along with other fund raising events to help hit our target.
