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.
My name is James Cohen, I am 57 and I was an acting Sergeant in the Light Infantry for nearly 12 years. I am one of the lucky ones, but there are a lot of veterans out there who need help and assistance, and the Light Infantry Association does just that - helps those who served their Country but now need their Country to help them.
So in June 2018, on the 50th Anniversary of the Light Infantry, 50 veterans (including myself) will be marching 50 miles, to raise £50,000 to help the Light Infantry Association to continue their fantastic work, and help support these ex-Soldiers and their families through very difficult times.
Your support could make such a difference - and any donation you can make towards this cause will be very much appreciated. Each veteran has a personal target of £1000+ to raise, so if you can, please donate and help me to help others.

A wonderful cause James. The best of luck, not that you need it as I can see you've taken your training seriously. Good luck. I am doing a sun dance for you for the big day as I write ;-)
