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.


*Note - due to unforeseen weather, the date has been changed and the skydive will now take place on Saturday 6th July.

On 17th April, I will reluctantly be leaving my 70s. To mark the occasion, my grandchildren suggested I do something special, so they came up with the idea of throwing me out of a plane. The prospect fills me with a mixture of horror and excitement, but I am duly obliging on Saturday 18th May and will be doing it in aid of my charity.

For the past 8 years, I have been selling Easter chicks to raise money for the Urology Department in the Ulster Hospital. In 2009, I was admitted to the Urology Department to have my kidney removed. I received wonderful treatment and the surgery was successful, but I discovered the department was lacking important equipment, hence the start of my charity. Since then, I (with an army of fellow knitters) have been knitting Easter chicks and for the last two years, bonnets to go with them, with all proceeds going to the charity.

To date, I have raised £28,000. This year, with the addition of the skydive, I am hoping to raise more than ever. The Urology Department is still in need of vital equipment, so any donations would be gratefully received. Here's hoping for a soft landing!
