    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    Some of you may already know that I was encouraged to enter the "Discover your Gold" programme. This being a talent programme for the Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020. The Shooting discipline is 10 meter Target and above.

    Having attended the trails at Stoke Mandeville for Disabled Shooting GB I was then invited to join the DSGB shooting club. This is where coaching takes place and once you have reached an acceptable standard of shooting you may then gain entry into the National Shooting team for GB.

    I believe I have the talent to succeed and had a fantastic interview and am classified to shoot as SH1 for both pistol and rifle.

    In order for me to progress I need to raise £3000.00 this is £2,600 for the rifle an Anschutz 9015 and the remainder is fees to crowdfunding. This will then allow me to concentrate on DSGB shooting over the next 12 months and earn my place on the talent programme which will in turn enable me to then focus and represent GB in future competitions both at home and overseas.

    I believe I can do this and with your initial support in the purchase of the rifle I am then set to prove I am worthy of selection and to represent my country.

    Thank you for your time in reading this and I hope you will feel able to support this funding opportunity.

    We all have a dream
