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.
For the past 12 years, it has been my greatest privilege to live and work at the Dru Centre in Snowdonia. This extraordinary place has benefitted my life in so many ways. I have seen hundreds of people improve their lives from their experience at the Dru Centre. As I approach my 60th birthday on 14 November, I have decided to give something back to Dru, and I hope you will join me!
Here’s what I suggest:
Since 2005, I have had the opportunity to give hundreds of massage treatments at the Dru Centre. However, since opening its doors in 1997, the Centre has had only one therapy room!
As many of you know, Dru's Ayurveda programmes are becoming increasingly popular. More and more people are asking for hands-on therapies. With only one therapy room, many people on our courses and retreats are not able to book.
The good news is that John Jones and our maintenance team have now started the process of creating two new therapy rooms adjacent to the Welcome Centre at a cost of approximately £12,000.
For my 60th Birthday on 14 November, it is my greatest wish that we can present John and his team with £6,000 to build the first of two therapy rooms. From 15 September to 14 November (60 days), I will be donating all the earnings from my massage therapy treatments to this cause. But on my own, I'd have to give more than 100 therapies by 14 November to reach our goal of £6,000!
So I'm asking for your help. Could you consider a gift of £10, £20 or £50 to build a new therapy room at the Lodge? For any contribution of £100 or more, I will personally offer you a free therapeutic massage in our new therapy room when you next visit the Lodge!
Together I know that we can reach this goal. Thank you for caring and making it possible for the Dru Centre to provide an even better health experience to the thousands of people who visit us each year!
With much love and gratefulness,

Hi Ned. As promised here is the amount of funds I have made from the sale of my hand-knitted dishcloths. Friends and family have bought these from me recently and all this money has now been donated.
