    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.


    I am an athlete at Birchfield Harriers Athletics Club, and have been for 6 years. 12 months ago Tom McCook (Birchfield Harriers President) sadly passed away. His family have launched a fund in his name dedicated to help and support aspiring young athletes in need.

    I am aiming to raise £1000 towards the fund by completing a skydive at 12,000 feet on the 8th of April this year. It would be great to surpass this target with your help.

    Money received will go to the fund for those children who cannot necessarily afford the equipment, kit, travel expenses and fees. Every child should be given a sporting chance - any donation is greatly received.

    Photos and videos will be posted once completed - Thank you for your support.

    Ben :)
