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 2 September 2017, Colin Stuart and I will be walking across the Queensferry Crossing at lunchtime having been successful in the ballot. We want to fundraise for End Polio Now and are looking for your support to help us raise £200. Due to the work that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Rotary have been doing, 16m people have avoided contracting polio, 2.5bn children have been vaccinated throughout the world, and only 5 cases of polio have been reported this year. A polio free world is genuinely in sight and we must get over the finish line. So, help Colin and I cross the finishing line at the bridge and you can help to eradicate polio from the world at the same time! Please gift aid your contribution if you can. FOR EVERY £1 WE RAISE THE GATES FOUNDATION WILL TRIPLE IT AND EVERY PENNY WILL GO INTO HELPING TO END POLIO! Thank you for your support.

I had a great day yesterday in blazing sunshine walking across the new Queensferry Crossing. Genuinely a once in a lifetime experience and really pleased to be a part of it and to be raising awareness and funds for such a great cause. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and donated to my justgivibg page. Very much appreciated by me, Rotary, and the Gates Foundation. A polio free world is now genuinely in sight xx
