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.


Jake Hodge is a 22 year old young man living in Stocksfield.
He has chronic respiratory failure and quadriplegic cerebal palsy.
The Home Ventilation Service based in the RVI Newcastle support Jake through the provision of non – invasive ventilator to help him breathe, particularly at night.
Without this life saving equipment and the skill of this remarkable team Jake would be at acute risk and his quality of life significantly compromised.
We are a small organisation committed to supporting the Home Ventilation Team by raising funds for vital equipment.
Home ventilation is helping thousands of people with chronic lung conditions and acute sleep disorders every day, but they need our support. Our aim is to continue to raise as many funds as possible for this fantastic service, through organised events and donations. Events are kicking off with Jake's big birthday bash where we hope to dance the night away to a fantastic band and DJ at Stocksfield Cricket club.. All donations are most welcome.both in funds and prizes for our raffle.
Together we can make Every Breath count.
