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 charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Donation Fees

Please note, that Just Giving have removed the mandatory 5% fee they take - which is brilliant.

Also note, that this now defaults to 15% - with the option to change to other values, starting at 0% fee.

Leeds Deaf Children Street Dance Xmas Party

To enthuse and bond Leeds' dispersed deaf youth community, I am organising a street-dance Christmas gathering for the many deaf affected families.

Time with awesome professional deaf dance artists have already been secured for 15th December and funded via other means, but here we are covering other costs (details as arrangements evolve).


My challenge to promote this fundraising will be to...

Run *each day* in November, the number of miles as the day of the month e.g. 1st will be 1 mile....15th will be 15 miles....30th will be 30 miles. Totalling 465 miles through November!

I attempted this last year and completed day 19 before bowing out due to imminent injury (no good as a run leader). This year, I have trained, I have dieted, I am keeping the leader decks clear so WILL run to completion or injury in order to support deaf children.


The target figure is simply the minimum miles I need to run!

Since its more than the anticipated level for the party, the remainder will be given to the local not-for-profit volunteer group Leeds-DCS to support the other deaf family events through the year (e.g. pantomime trip, ice skating, soft play).

Families with deaf children frequently feel isolated since years of government cuts have left (less than) skeleton support in all aspects. The earlier we can support deaf/hearing impaired children (like my son), the more independently capable they are in later life. Therefore, it's essential the community helps itself by regularly meeting and supporting each other.

The secured street dance artists really are inspirational to the children, with many already following them on Social Media.

Local Business - Run/Bike Lead

Could your (Leeds area) organisation raise £200 for our great cause?

Then I'll head over and lead a bike ride or run session one lunch or evening.

I am qualified and insured as a British Cycling Ride Leader and a UK Athletics Run Leader. Maybe I can encourage your workforce to become more active and focused?

Business sponsors' logos would also appear on electronic media and feature in a league table!

Simply contact me to clarify/arrange.

My son has the rare auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder, identified whilst being 3 months premature. The Leeds Deaf Childrens Society has helped him feel less isolated and see how normal hearing aids are. The group receives very little funding, therefore this is my payback.
