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.


On Saturday the 15th of December, 2018, we heard about the tragic loss of one of our dearest friends, David Needham. At the age of 40, he had many loves...his family, his partner Psyche, LARPing, tabletop roleplay and being a security guard.

As funerals are exorbitant in costs, we would like to assist Dave's family in taking some of the burden of cost. Anything that we raise will be of great assistance.

The date of his funeral has been set for Thursday the 17th of January 2019. It will be held at Loughborough Crematorium at 1:15pm (Leicester Road, Loughborough, LE11 2AF). A wake will follow at the Hathern Club (44 Dovecote Street, Hathern, Loughborough LE12 5HS). This is all to be a celebration of Dave's life, so if you would like to wear your LARP or ritual wear, we would like to encourage it.

"Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush . I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. " by Mary Elizabeth Frye
