    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.

    Story

    Rebecca is a member of the inaugural Great Britain Para-badminton squad training for Toyko 2020, following the announcement that para-badminton will be included in the Paralympics for the first time.

    Rebecca, who has achondroplasia, plays in the SS6 (short stature) classification.

    Rebecca is current World Champion in SS6 Women's Doubles She is also ranked No2 in World for Singles and Mixed Doubles.

    Badminton England are currently unable to fund the para badminton team's attendance at tournaments and each team member is responsible for their own entry fees, travel and accommodation costs.

    Rebecca hopes to be able to successfully defend her World Doubles title in Ulsan, South Korea in November 2017. In order to prepare and to maintain her World ranking points she is also aiming to play in other international tournaments ahead of the World Championships.

    Rebecca, 19, is currently studying History at Sheffield University.

    She would be extremely grateful for any donations to help her achieve her goals of representing England in South Korea in November and to medal in all three of her disciplines.
