    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.

    Story

    I started off with this in 2011, donating some football kit to some lads in the Kasungu district of Malawi. Since then I've had kit donated by Sunderland AFC and lots of pairs of shoes and boots donated by parents of students in my school.

    The original team has disbanded but there are millions of football mad Malawians who, I hope, will be inspired and encouraged by having some proper kit.

    I have already secured some very cheap and good quality Adidas kit from Sunderland AFC, but I think we can easily get lots more. Seeing the reaction of the Malawian footballers rates among the best experiences I've ever had and has inspired me to try to do a bit more.

    The Original football team story: (from 2011)
    Kamuzu Academy Young Sunderland Football Club
    I was asked by the Head of Kamuzu Academy, Mr Francis Cooke MBE to donate some football shirts to a group of teenage boys who live in the Mtunthama area.

    Providing some support in terms of clothing, boots/ trainers and balls would make a massive difference to these delightful young lads. They are a good bunch, work hard and love football - some have lost parents and do not have much in terms of material possessions.

    It was suggested that I become "Chairman" of the club and continue trying to get some additional support. Please get in contact if you are keen to contribute.
