    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Hi,

    Thanks for looking at our Just Giving page.

    This weekend, Hannah Rotchell & I are taking part in a race called the "Commando Series" (think running, climbing, jumping and 18 freezing water filled obstacles) to raise money for the "Stopgap Dance West Kent Youth Group". Stopgap Dance Company (charity #1116776) is a professional dance company and charity who work with both disabled and non-disabled dancers to put on performances all over the world.

    Here's the difficult bit for me... the explanation of why Hannah & I are fundraising;

    I have two amazing girls - the eldest of whom, Anja, has special needs. With her sister, Anja attends a mainstream, inclusive primary school which gives her endless support & opportunities. Unfortunately opportunities for inclusive activities outside school are much more limited. Many people work hard to provide activities, however it’s a reality that finding suitable activities is difficult.

    To our story - around 18 months ago, Stopgap visited Anja’s school to perform & put on a workshop with huge success. Having heard how the children enjoyed the class, I got the opportunity to help establish a regular local class going forward. Jan Cockburn (Anja's teaching assistant) & I have worked with Hannah (the dance teacher & my running partner) & are now into the second year of running the class - however as you might expect, funding remains critical. Our aim is to raise money to ensure we can keep participation costs low, to help cover overheads & to help cover the cost of transportation – including to take our group perform at the Stopgap Christmas platform.

    Any donation helps. Inclusive activities benefit everyone regardless of ability so your support is invaluable!

    Thank you for reading & thank you for donating – in return we’re prepared to brave the cold and tackle the course!

    Peter & Hannah

      Massive thanks to everyone. As cliched as it sounds, knowing how much sponsorship we had behind us made the challenge that much easier! 18 freezing obstacles, completely submerged in water and below is the end result... We're both beyond proud to be supporting our cause, and to have such an amazing group of friends to have raised this much money! THANK YOU!
