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.


I need to raise £1,250 to be able to support a team of adults with learning disabilities take part in a once in a lifetime event and I need your help.

In March 2019, I'm taking an amazing team of four athletes to Abu Dhabi to compete in a World Games Sporting event for people with learning disabilities as part of the Special Olympics Great Britain team.

I was appointed at the start of 2018 as volunteer Head Coach for Table Tennis and was genuinely buzzing and proud to be selected as part of #TeamSOGB! I’ve worked in and around disability sport for about 10 years now and I’ve never taken on a challenge like this so I can’t wait to get going!

I’ll be doing everything I can to support the team to feel comfortable and prepared in the build up and during the games so they can have the best possible time. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for them so I'm looking for it to be as special as possible!

Special Olympics do amazing work to create opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities to take part in fun sports competitions that not only help them become better sports people, but happier and more confident people in general.

I need to raise some funds to cover my place on the trip and anything I raise beyond that will go to making this as amazing as possible before, during and after the World Games for the athletes.

Anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated and I'll keep you updated on any fundraising events I come up with!
