    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.


    Hi and thanks for taking an interest, what am I fund raising for ???

    First some background, in the last 10 years I have had 2 heart attacks and bladder cancer, my wife 1 year ago had a double mastectomy, so you could say things have been a bit rough.

    A very good friend of mine plays golf and invited me along, well I loved it, however, we have found that it's quite expensive for clubs (half decent) and membership.

    The funding will help towards a number of things, get us both membership at a local club, which in the long term will save us money, will allow us to upgrade our clubs (I bought mine for £1 each at the dump, no, really I did!). The main thing is, we would like to get some gear to aid us to create a vBlog of our journey...

    Journey, what journey !??

    Yes, I'm new to golf, so once I get membership I can get an official handicap, as can my friend Wayne, and we'd like to create a timeline showing how we (hopefully) get our handicaps down, the goal, would be reduce by 10 strokes over a 1 year period, yes it will not be easy, but a worthwhile journey never is..
    For me in particular, increasing my fitness level and get some exercise, I have a sedentary job, and need a reason to get out and exercise.

    If you do decide to donate, thank you, and if you are ok with it, your name would be displayed at the end of every video, and if you would like any links adding, then that would be accommodated..

    Please take part and help up in our quest / journey..

    Thank You

        Great people make things happen

        Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

        Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
