    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.


    Martin was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in september last year. Up until then Martin led an active sporty life playing football, rugby, boxing/kick boxing and running. Martin has many friends and enjoyed all these activities with them. Martin also for many years worked for Bradford Council as a bereavement service officer where he had many friends and colleagues and was well liked and respected. Martin is a lovely caring, kind and strong person with an amazing personality and is much loved by all of his friends and family.

    Since Martins diagnosis his day to day life has changed dramatically. From all the things we take for granted like getting out of bed, getting showered, dressed and moving around the home on his own has become virtually impossible without the assistance of his wife. Helen has recently given up working full time to care for Martin and assist with his daily needs. Since the illness martin's social life has slowly diminished. He can no longer attend his beloved Bradford City home games of which he was a season ticket holder and enjoyed the company of his football mates. The life style change that the illness has caused has led to Martin feeling quite isolated at times.

    On Saturday the 11th August 2018 at 15.00pm we are holding a fund raising event for Martin at the Manor House Pub on Leeds Rd, Eccleshill, Bradford. There will be a DJ and food on the day and for those of you who know Martin well, he will not be stripping. We are hoping to raise funds to pay for the rental and upkeep of a stair lift and any other new adapataions that are required as the illness progresses. If it is possible we would love to see as many of Martins friends, old and new at the event. So we are ale to cater for numbers could you please let us know if you are able to attend.

    If you would like to kindly donate to help Martin you can do this through the Just Giving Page or on the day of the event.

    We would like to thank everyone for taking the time to read about Martin and for their love and support through difficult times.

      On behalf of martin moran & helen moran they would like to say a huge thank you to everyone from the bottom of their hearts for your kind and more than generous donations to martins jgp. The funds raised will help martin considerably. The jgp will close on Friday the 10th August so plenty of time to donate any spare change. Helen has been my best buddy for 35 years and I have known Martin well over half of that time. We have gone through everything together and we will also go through this. Thank you from myself for all your generosity.

    As those close to Martin know, he was recently diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. I have seen the affect that this had on all those who love him. Please read Martins story and if you can donate or attend the event, it would be much appreciated.
