    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.

    Story

    British Bobsleigh is set to withdraw funding from its women's team - just five months before the Winter Olympics. Mica McNeill - the top female driver - said she was "gutted and shocked" to be told by bosses there was no money left to fund her because of "an overspend".

    The British Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association (BBSA) is the country's best-funded winter sport governing body, having been awarded £10M for this Olympic cycle, and intends to continue supporting three men's teams on its performance programme. But it is now uncertain whether Team GB will be represented in the women's bobsleigh competition, even though McNeill has met the Olympic qualifying standard, in order to compete in Pyeongchang, won gold at the junior world championships earlier this year. .

    She and her female colleagues are now hoping to raise around £30,000 to fund themselves (Report Dan Roan and Nick Hope of the BBC)

    Women's sport is every bit as important as Men's sport and All sport gives individuals of any gender wonderful aspirations to aim for. First it was Rugby Union, now it is Bobsleigh. The Women's Bobsleigh team deserve to be at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
