    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.


    Hi there!

    Thanks for stopping by my Crowdfunding Page. Please help me to help save The Bennachie Leisure Centre (BLC) in my local village of Insch, Aberdeenshire.

    The BLC Charity organisation is a 20 year old community / volunteer run leisure facility where I, amongst others of all ages in the Community, have enjoyed many activities such as Spinning, body pump, gym and kids parties for my little one to name but a few.

    Unfortunately due to falling revenues, rising costs and debt which have accumulated over a long period of time, the BLC is now in financial difficulty.

    As a local resident and also a member of the board of trustees, I am committed to personally fighting to keep BLC open now and for the future for our Community.

    To do this, we need to raise £20,000.00 in order to clear the accumulated debt and secure the future of the facility - by end September 2017!!!

    Once we have cleared that debt, we will have access to funds that will help to bring the place back to life!

    Many fundraising activities are being organised in a mass effort to raise funds. I am taking part in the Crathes Half Marathon on Saturday 16 September. Given the last (and only) Half Marathon I did was in 1986, I am now on a strict diet and training programme.

    Please help me to 'Save Bennachie Leisure Centre' from closure.

    Thanks for reading this, your donations are gratefully appreciated.

        Ian, when it starts to hurt, remember that walking the (up)hills IS an acceptable form of cheating..!
