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 work to support vulnerable artists. Russell Ronnelly Jones was an amazing artist, a quiet humble man. Often isolated, Russell struggled with a mental health diagnosis and depression. I had the pleasure of working with Russell for 16 years, we shared a great passion for creating art. When Russell passed away there was no one to take care of his amazing artworks. With permission from his sister (she too lives with disability). Myself & my colleagues volunteered to save Russell's paintings.

We would love to give Russell a funeral ceremony fit for an incredibly talented local artist.

We want to hold a benefit exhibition In order to extend our project offer, to reach and support more vulnerable or disabled artists.
The first 40 people that donate over £25, you will receive a high quality reproduction print of Russell's Artwork.
Russell had just a few friends, some vulnerable or disabled too. Our aim is for Russell's shortened life to give hope and meaning to others.

Please give a thought for those that experience isolation and discrimination. Share appreciation for Disability Arts. We thank you.
