What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


Hi I've started this crownding page to raise much needed funds for two very special causes.

The first is the BHF, The British Heart Foundation is the nations Heart charity and largest independent funder of Cardiovascular researcher.

The second is The Transplant Unit @ The University Hospital of South Manchester (UHSM).

Here in the UK we have this amazing thing we call the NHS. Doctors & Nurses, Porters & Cleaners who all work around the clock to give us the care & medical help we need - no questions, it's just done.

I'm 43 & I've been in heart failure for a few years now. I'm also on the Heart Transplant List - have been for a short time really, just 6 months.
The operation only possible due to huge kindness of a donor and his/her family.
I am under the care of a great team at the University Hospital of South Manchester.

I am asking you to put a little something in the pot to help raise some money to help put some funds into the research and help to put some funds back into the pot & help the crackin' team at this hospital.

Thank You X
