    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.

    Story

    Disabled people are often prevented from making the most of their lives because of the barriers that stop them working and taking part in everyday activities. Assistive technology can change that. The British Assistive Technology Association was set up to campaign to raise awareness of AT and to encourage the development of new technologies. One of the areas BATA is keen to promote is aids for people who have a vision impairment. To fund activities in this area members are undertaking a sponsored walk in the Peak District. A group of members will set off on a 25km hike between Bakewell, via Ashford in the Water to Tideswell and finally Ashwood, the initial letters of the four places spelling out BATA . Your support would be much appreciated and will help our work of advancing the cause of assistive technology.

      First stop on our walk. The intrepid four later faced rain like stair rods, a mountain goat path and crossed a lime works. But the sun did come out briefly and the scenery was spectacular. Thanks to all those who supported us, especially David and Debbie. And it is still not too late to contribute.
