    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

    SAVI is a local community charity which provides a meeting place for visually impaired members of Bolton and surrounding district. Our service provides blind and partially sighted members with a place to meet, make new friends, alleviate social isolation and promotes self confidence and self worth. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1627562957467601/

    The group is self funding with the support of volunteers and members but needs funds to pay for outings and activities which the members enjoy. Recent trips have included seaside, country parks and shopping. As a volunteer with the group, I have seen how much they enjoy and look forward to these trips. My Mum is also a member and lost a good part of her sight due to Macular Degeneration. Joining this group has given her something to look forward to every week and she has made numerous new friends

    I am taking part in a 100 mile cycle ride with the British Cycling Lets Ride group of Friendly Cyclists which takes place on 10th September 2017 around Blackpool and Southport. I am hoping to get some of the younger members of the group involved in Tandem riding and any funds I raise would be a big help for this.

    So, if anyone would be kind enough to support in this , I would be grateful for any donations, large or small.

    Thank you

    Kath

      The lovely Pauline and Carol, with SAVI members, Kieran and guide dog Faith, Salman and Peter. Both work very hard to keep the group going, fundraising, weekly Saturday club and a meal and organising outings. Without them and other volunteers and committee members, the group wouldn't exist to provide a vital service for some very vulnerable members. It makes such a difference for them having this group to go to. Please help me to get to the £500 target. One more training ride of 50 miles tomorrow, with the 100 next Sunday. Still time to
