Weʼre raising £10,000 to Help save lives. I have saved lives since I was 13. I need to undertake a 2 yr course to continue. This is for a quarter of the cost.

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 passed my first aid certificate when I was 13. I cared for people through the St. John Ambulance until I became an Ambulance Service Cadet. I qualified as an Emergency Medical Technician and then completed Paramedic training at my own expense and in my time. The NHS introduced examinations and training and I passed the examinations in the first group. I was the first and only Paramedic at Huntingdon Ambulance Station for nearly two years.
I have saved numerous lives in the UK, USA and Saudi Arabia.
My ambulance career is over due to a disability that prevents my passing the fitness test but my desire to look after people and save lives continues. I am to undertake a post graduate course to qualify as a Physician Associate. The course does not have any funding and will cost nearly £20000 in fees alone. The course is very intensive and does not have long holidays because of this there are no opportunities to work part time or in the holidays.
I seeking funding for a quarter of the cost. I am also cashing in my pension to help finance it.
Help me continue to work in the NHS to make a difference in peoples' lives.
