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.
Aidan Quinn is an exceptional young man from the east end of Glasgow who all his life has strived to become a renowned athlete. Through hard work and perseverance he has become Scotlands top triple jumper at the age of 18. He has been offered a scholarship to study at a top sports school in USA but needs to raise £5000 for costs. We are seeking to support this young athlete as we believe he has the potential to compete at the highest level for Scotland and the UK.
£150 will cover one months food and nutrition
£500 will cover one months accommodation
£1000 will cover rent, food, fees and transport.
£5000 should cover his first year.

Thank you to all who made a donation. I'll be taking the page down at the end of this week. Aidan has been working very hard in New Mexico and will start competing in February of next year. Your contributions have helped him on his way.
