    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.


    I travelled to Ghana in 2017 as a volunteer dentist for 2 weeks. The trip had an enormous impact on me, so much so that I plan to return again on a voluntary basis in 2018.

    The only access to dentistry the local people have currently is when the healthcare team visits in November for 2 weeks. Many of the patients we saw in 2017 had severe dental infections, some even being life threatening.

    Just before the 2017 Ghana trip, I received the news that I had secured a Rugby and Northampton athletic club ballot place at the London Marathon.

    Many people approached me to say they would make a charitable donation when they heard I had a marathon entry, so the obvious choice was to raise some funds to buy some new dental instruments to take to Ghana in 2018. Your donations will be purely to acquire dental equipment.

      The London Marathon JustGiving page closed a few days ago. Many thanks for your support and each individual donation meant a lot to me. I visited the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show last week at the NEC and am now in email correspondence with several of the companies that I met there regarding purchase of equipment. Also I have had some dental forceps given to me as a result of the interest generated by this fundraising. Many thanks again and I will sign off now.

      Day after the event. Morning coffee with fellow club member Mick who ran yesterday. Conversation was mainly all about the brutal heat. Then had massage which was really nice. Lunch out. If you showed your medal you got a your photo taken and a discount voucher. Pilates tonight, and cannot say a big enough thank you to Karen of Northants Pilates who has been raising funds on my behalf at her classes. The elation of yesterday is now tempered by the sad news that a runner had passed away yesterday in the heat. Loss of a kindred spirit.
