    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.


    This year, I (and my best friend Kate Alexander) am finally doing Dry January in aid of my little brother Fabians charity, Fabians Childhood Cancer Trust.

    Fabian was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in 2006 at the age of 4, after several visits to the GP with a persistent lump in his neck. For the next 8 years he would undergo several rounds of chemotherapy, two bone marrow transplants and a pioneering trial in immunotherapy. Sadly, after a long and difficult fight with this disease, Fabian passed away on 11.11.14 at the age of 12.

    My granddad has since set up a charity in Fabians memory, which supports families who have a child diagnosed with cancer - Fabians Childhood Cancer Trust. As a small charity, there are a few areas that we would like to fundraise for. These include making life that tiny bit easier on hospital wards: we provide treat bags to families who suddenly find themselves admitted (they include toiletries, as well as little treats), and we also provide special trips for families to places such as Legoland. Alongside this, we also provide funding for research, particularly in relapsed childhood cancer - check out my blog post on the charity website to find out a bit more about this:

    Kate and I have made what we feel is a VERY sacrificial decision to do Dry January (no alcohol for a month) in the hope that some of our friends and family will feel sorry for us and sponsor us - we are aiming for £500 but it would be amazing if we could beat that!!

      Thanks so much to EVERYONE who has donated - can’t quite believe this but we have made 96% of our target just halfway through the month! Which is why we are UPPING our target to £650!

      It's been just over a week and we have been totally alcohol-free - not even a champagne truffle or trifle with sherry in!! First weekend was tough but definitely worth it knowing we are raising money to help give some small relief to families going through a really difficult time. Thanks to everyone who has already donated!! Hoping to smash the target!

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?
