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 Da Vinci robot is an important piece of equipment for treating prostate cancer. Through the use of a console, the surgeon is able to perform extremely delicate procedures with great accuracy and with minimal impact on the patient. Each console costs £2200, and the Eastbourne Hospital is hoping to raise sufficient money to purchase five of these (£11000). This will enable other surgeons to perfect their ability to perform procedures in prostate cancer treatments.
Although not affiliated to the hospital in any way, the Eastbourne-based band Southern Spirit have committed to helping to fund-raise for this cause. Our rock and blues music covers groups from the '60s through to the '80s, such as The Small Faces, Stones, Beatles and The Shadows . We are performing a charity concert in the Under Ground Theatre on Saturday 2nd September at 7.30pm as a main fund raiser. Tickets will be available from the theatre, from the tourist office and from www.onlineticketseller.com, among other outlets.
Anyone who does not wish to attend the event but would still like to participate or who wishes to donate more towards this charity cause can do so here.
