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 represent the UK at the European Transplant Games, this year in Italy and in Birmingham for the British ones. I am defending two hold medals in table tennis, won in Finland two years ago. I also compete in petanque and javelin. The idea is to promote organ donation.

I have to pay for my own training, flights, competition entry fees and expenses as well as take annual leave to compete.

I suffer from Cystic Fibrosis and had a double lung transplant in 2005 and rejection has left me with 20-25 per cent of the lung capacity of a 'normal' person my age.

I get media coverage for each tournament to show what can be achieved after transplantation and get people to have the conversation with their families and friends.

I have taken parts in debates on presumed consent (the opt out system) on the BBC and local media organisations
