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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Nevis radio is a community radio station for Lochaber. Run by 2 members of staff and 36 volunteers.
In 2019 Nevis Radio is set to not only train the next generation of broadcasters, but now also offer training in club style DJing, the ability to host its own music events for the community and working towards an in house live recording studio facility for Lochaber

Currently a lot of the training work is done in my own time over and above my job, mainly as its also a passion of mine.
I'd love to raise some money to put towards our projects as I believe it can make a difference and add to the already rich pool of musical talent in Lochaber.

What better way to do it than with the local radio station.

To raise this money I am looking to achieve a skydive in 2019. I've never been 1 for mad things to do, or even extreme sports but always loved the idea of feeling weightless or free fall.
To this end I am requesting sponsorship to literally be pushed out of a plane in the name of local music!

    You always know it’s going to be mad when you say, “I’ve had an idea!” Behind you all the way for this, my friend, except for when you are actually shoved out of the plane. That won’t be me...
