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.


Matt Powell was a PCSO on my team who died suddenly on 30th June. He was diagnosed with cancer but died 10 days later.
He leaves behind his lovely wife and three heart broken children. He was a carer for his wife who fights the confines of MS every day.

Matt's humour and determination saw him through many a difficult time. He suffered from poor health for years but was courageous and brave. He plodded the streets of his communtities and was an excellent PCSO. He knew his stuff and he knew his stuff well.
He had an extremely kind heart and an overwhelming love for his family.
I promised him that his family would become part of our family. I promised him that we would look after them because I know what we can do when we all pull together.
I know that Trish, Kieran, Harvey and Alisha would be humbled by any help we can give them. The support of being part of our family, the police and communities he protected will make their hearts swell with pride.
Please help us that loved and worked with Matt help our new family. Please help us show them that we look after our own and please help us show them how much Matt meant to us all.

      From some of your colleagues at Kettering Borough Council who knew you well and worked with you. We hope that this small amount helps reach the £15,000 goal for your children.
