£1,242raised of £750 target by 73 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,242 to to pay for a fitting memorial for my dear dear friend Matt Greenwood, who lost his ongoing struggle to cancer at the age of 21.

    Funded on Saturday, 31st December 2016

    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.


    So myself (Alec Burns) and Dominic Calleja will be SHAVING our heads in support of Matthew Greenwood, the top 1 donation will have the privilage of shaving one our heads, the other shaving will be taken a random from all doners.

    For those who don't already know a dear dear friend of mine Matt Greenwood was been diagnosed with terminal bone cancer, he was 21 years old and was been given 6-9 months to live.

    For the last 3 momths Matthew hadundergone various cycles of chemo and eventually took the difficult decision to remove his leg to allow him to leave the hospital to enjoy the rest of his life.

    unfortunately, he contracted pneumonia and the cancer developed far more quickly than his treatment could cope with. He passed away on earlier this month.

    Although messages of condolence are appreciated what is really needed now are donations, so i ask you to dig deep and give anything you can to help pay for a deserved memorial to honour him. Said memorial will be placed at his secondary school, Queen Mary's Grammar School.
