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.
Open Book at Goldsmiths aims to break down the barriers that discourage people from entering higher education. The project works closely with a network of agencies to support people from a wide range of non-traditional backgrounds including, offending, addiction and mental health, as well as those who have never truly considered further and higher education as any kind of route to enhancing their future career choices and personal development.
We believe in Education for education's sake and that universities can be transformed to be welcoming and truly open to everyone.

About the fundraiser
After 2 knee replacements I'm getting back to activity so I've challenged myself to raise funds by swimming from Dedham to Flatford mill down the river Stour. I work for the Open Book project and I can guarantee how much these funds are needed for our students.
