    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.

    Story

    We are a group of water rescue technicians with a passion for keeping people safe around water and rivers. It is becoming increasingly common to hear of someone who has gone missing near a body of water or a river, only to be found in the water weeks later.

    There is a magnitude of talking and teaching currently on staying safe at sea, but little to nothing regarding inland water, which is currently claiming many lives.

    We are fundraising to purchase vital equipment to allow us to provide safety and educational patrols on the water, focusing on Bristol Harbour to start with.
    Our vision is to create a charity which delivers safety informatin and vital skills to enable children and adults to enjoy water while reducing the risk of drowning and other dangers.

    Our plan is to develop teaching aids, techniques and memorable materials that can be used by everyone, from all walks of life to teach at home or within the education system.

    We require funding to buy vital equipment such as a safety boat, PPE, a vehicle, teaching materials and other kit.

    Our success is dependant on public support. The team have put many hours into developing the idea into something that can be used to save lives.
