    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.


    Eleven year old Rory will attempt a 400m open water swim across one of Northern Ireland’s most tidal deep seawater sounds. On 26th August, he will tackle wind, waves, cold and jellyfish to battle his way from Islandmore in Strangford Lough to the Northern Ireland mainland.

    Rory is fundraising for EMBRACE a Belfast based charity working together to promote a positive response to people who are seeking asylum, refugees, migrant workers and people from minority-ethnic backgrounds living in Northern Ireland.

    Formed in October 2003 EMBRACE is registered with The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland NIC100294.

      When Rory first indicated that he would like to do something to help immigrants who arrive on our shores, 26th August seemed a long way off. Now with less than a week to go, Rory has already raised £1,342. We are now at the final push stage. People have been so generous and continue to be so. Your kind messages of support mean a lot. Please continue to share the story. Thank you. Rory pictured with his Dad after his training swim yesterday.
