    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

    I am Martin Stevens and along with my neighbour Xolani Moyo, we are raising money for Llandegley Community Group to buy a defibrillator and heated cabinet for use by and for the local community. A defibrillator is a machine that is used on someone who suffers a cardiac arrest - you can read more here. We will be seeking a grant from British Heart Foundation to fund the remaining costs.

    Do you know that after a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone's chance of survival by 10 per cent!

    This is something that we believe it is incredibly important! As we know Llandegley is in a rural area and the nearest Accident and Emergency department is 31 miles away!!! So it is vital that we have this life saving equipment to hand.

    In order to raise the funds - we will be tackling the 3 peaks challenge in just 24 hours on the 21st June 2018! This mammoth task will be supported with a community BBQ on the 3rd June 2018 all in the name of ensuring that this equipment is in place for when it is needed.

    Please help support in whatever way you can!

    Many thanks Martin and Xolani

      The challenge will begin today! The three peaks in 24 hours. Please keep an eye on my Facebook page (martin.stevens.98031506) as I will be sending updates from there, as and when we can. I've attached some pictures of the community BBQ we had the other weekend - it was a great day and helped us ensure that we get the Llandegley Defibrillator! So well done everyone involved. All money left over after buying the defibrillator, heated cabinet and fitting them, will be donated to a good cause. Thanks again, keep donating and wish us luck!

      Wow!!!! A massive thank you to everyone who has helped us reach our target. Now all that is left to do is to complete the mission. We have been training hard and I have more photos to upload regarding that. Of course, I must mention the Community BBQ which was a great success thanks to the community spirit and hard work of the organisers! I will also be posting about that shortly and have some lovely photos of the day. Cheers Martin, Xolani and Josh

      Another weekend - another training session. This time we scaled Scafell Pike in England. Although, this time round I managed to get Xolani into a few of the snaps. We made good timing and are feeling confident and prepared as we head into June - the month where we take on the 3 peak challenge! A reminder that we are having our Community BBQ on the 3rd June (please see previous post for details) - everyone is welcome. Please join us between 12pm and 6pm. Thanks and, as always, please share. Martin, Xolani and Josh

    I am a resident of Llandegley and a keen member of the Community Group. I work locally and live with my partner and 1.5 year old son. I am passionate about raising these funds as I believe this is a really important issue living so far from a hospital. Please help support us.
