Weʼve raised £585 to go towards a new library for our small local primary school. And I thought I'd jump out of a plane while I'm at it

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.
I'm turning 40 in September and would like to celebrate by doing a tandem skydive whilst helping out our local primary school with much needed funds. The government cuts have hit Meersbrook Bank hard, as it is a one-class entry school and schools get funding per pupil. Parents and staff work tirelessly all year to raise their own funds for essential equipment, playground facilities, and enrichment activities, and we're currently hoping to raise enough funds to build a new library for the school. This is just me doing my bit towards that. ALL funds will go directly towards this project.
Please note that Friends of Meersbrook Bank IS a charity but has not yet become affiliated with a fundraising page; hence why I have set up a crowdfunding page. I hope that it does not put you off sponsoring me.

Thanks so much everyone for all your generous support! I've met my target! Everything else will be going to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit who looked after my incredible mum. One more week to go and I am beyond excited!!
