    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.

    Story

    Martin was dedicated to helping others and we would like to continue his efforts and hard work in his memory. We have selected two charities he held dear to donate towards being; Advocacy First, a local charity he volunteered for and a research project into AML being conducted by Kings College Hospital. We have set this page up under crowdfunding as both these charities are so small they are not recognised by just giving so we are going to split the money and gift aid evenly between these two charities manually.

    Martin's Story:

    Martin was a proud volunteer for Advocacy First a local charity helping people in the local community. He would commonly speak about people that he had helped and felt humbled that he made a real difference. This charity lost their local government funding grant in 2017 which meant the services they could provide were dramatically cut, so truly every little donation really goes a long way.

    More details can be found on their website at:

    Advocacy First

    Registered Charity: 1071906

    As most of you are aware Martin was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukaemia which is a form of blood cancer) in 2015. He was treated by a specialist team at King's College Hospital where the care he received was second to none. He underwent a stem cell transplant in November 2016 which sufficiently prolonged his life to enjoy a number of significant life events such as walking his daughter down the aisle and seeing his first grandson being born. Unfortunately in early 2018 it became evident that Martin's blood cancer had returned, despite his treatment. Martin’s consultant, Dr Austin Kulasekararaj, is conducting a research project specialising in the strain of blood cancer he had (AML) to help others diagnosed with the disease. This is part of the wider fundraising which Kings is undertaking here is a short video to explain further:

    Martin was actually treated by Prof Ghulam Mufti w ho features in this film. Martin would very much want research into better treatment options / cures to be derived to ensure others could be helped.

        Martin was a wonderful, kind and generous man. I feel lucky to have know him and shared many happy times on family holidays together. He brought fun and laughter to all those around him.
