    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.


    As I am sure many of you are already aware, we started a Just Giving page up for Dave just over a month ago, as Dave was diagnosed with Stage 2 leukaemia. The initial Just Giving page target was set at £2000 to help support Dave and his family while he battled this terrible disease, of which we managed to raise £1075.

    But on Tuesday we received the heartbreaking news, that the sessions of chemotherapy had been unsuccessful and Dave was given 2 weeks to live, maybe less :(

    As you can imagine, this is heartbreaking, not only for his family, but for everyone who knows Dave. Everyone I speak to says the same about him, he is a top guy and would do anything to help anyone.

    Now is our time to help Dave and his family.

    The original Just Giving page raised just over £1k, which was to support Dave and his family, as we all prayed and hoped that Dave would beat his illness and pull through. Unfortuanetly, this wasn't the outcome we all hoped for.

    I have been told, as Dave has had cancer before, unfortunately he could not get any life insurance, so the funeral costs will have to be self funded :(

    So, this new Just Giving page is to help give Dave the send off he thoroughly deserves. And to start it off, we are putting the money back in that we raised on the previous Just Giving page, just over £1000.

    I can't say enough good things about Dave Sunter, a good friend, a true warrier, a great person and a lovely guy.
