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.


On the 18th August Joel Bibby (13) will run 5k (park run), cycle 5k then swim 5k.

Joel will do this to raise money for some friends who have had major illnesses to deal with.

Liam is a family friend who played for Bournemouth Uni rugby team. Joel and Liam became firm friends when Joel regulaly attended Uni rugby coaching, so much so that Liam was like a big brother to Joel.

Liam is an amazing lad who at the age of 19 was struck down with Transverse Myelitis. He is paralysed from the hips down. But this has not changed his outlook on life and he is still the life and soul. He has moved into coaching rugby and has already taken his rugby coaching qualification and secured a placement at Southampton Football in sports psychology. His Mum is amazing and has used all of her savings to convert her flat into a place Liam can feel safe and secure and she can care for him when required. He would also like to try nerve replacement to see if he can get any movement back in his legs.

We have had three people we know in the last 12 months affected by cancer so half the money will also go to Cancer Research. Please donate what you can to help these two amazing causes.
