£645raised of £2,000 target by 16 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help promote Chiropractic as a career through schools and universities.

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.


There are not enough students choosing Chiropractic as a career. Backpain, and Musculoskeletal problems more generally, are one of the single biggest reasons why people visit their GP, and not only does it cost the NHS £6 billion annually, it also results in 10.8 million man days being lost to the economy every year. As we live longer, it is vital that we help people to keep active, healthy and pain free lives. Chiropractors are a key part in making that happen. I have dedicated 40 years of my professional life to organising, developing and promoting Chiropractic in the UK and now, for more people to benefit from Chiropractic care, we need to train more Chiropractors. I am riding from Bath to Paris in June 2018 to raise money for this cause. I am not a cyclist so this is quite a mission, but also quite an adventure. Please support me so that an increasing number of young people will have access to a great career and then many more people around the country will benefit from Chiropractic care to improve their health and wellbeing.

£10 buys 100 leaflets for schools careers departments £20 buys 5 posters to put in sixth form colleges £50 keeps the website running for a month £100 allows dos to send 200 letters to school careers departments £500 buys an impressive pop-up stand £700 allows us to send a small team to a university £1000 buys space at a National Careers Guidance Show
