    Weʼve raised £1,070 to help fund the startup of The Jack Pullen Foundation

    Funded on Sunday, 31st January 2021

    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

    The Jack Pullen Foundation was founded in memory of Jack Taylor Pullen, who tragically lost his life in a river accident in 2016, aged just 16 years old.

    In Jack's legacy, his family wanted to create a charity in his name; offering water safety education through social media and also to local schools and communities.

    We also want to be able to provide bereavement counselling for those families and friends who have lost somebody specifically to a water-related incident.

    Furthermore, we want to be able to install PRE (Personal Rescue Equipment) throughout the whole of the UK's 2,200 mile stretch of waterways; especially inland waterways. 

    Myself, Jack's Uncle wanted to start up a non-profit organisation to help raise awareness of water safety to all under 18's and to eventually provide swimming lessons to all primary school children for an extended period; not just the ten week block currently provided by the state.

    Understandably, setting up a charity is a lengthy task and involves a lot of hard work. We currently have fundraising events set up to help us to achieve our goal of setting up as an official charity and preventing more people from drowning through education and other preventative measures. 

    BUT for us to become a fully fledged and registered charity, we need to have £5000 worth of donations. This money will then allow us to apply for Government funding and grants to be able to achieve our goals.

    WE BELIEVE that together with your support, we can STAMP OUT these accidental deaths and provide our communities with life saving equipment and education.

    Thank you for your support.

      We want to say a massive thank you to everybody who has donated so far!! You really have given us the opportunity to grow and be a step closer to becoming a charity. We are going to use these initial funds for the following: - to install PRE (public rescue equipment) which consists of a throwline, throwbag or a life ring at the river where Jack drowned - to install another piece of the same equipment in an area within Tameside that the GMFRS (Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service) deem suitable. - Banners and charity necessities.
