    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.


    Cancer radiotherapy treatment saves lives. We need more radiotherapy equipment. And we need it locally.
    To raise funds for this I am member of a group doing (and I will complete) the Marlborough to Wroughton half marathon walk on Saturday 10th December
    The funds I raise will go towards equipping Swindon with two linear accelerators, enabling cancer patients from Swindon and Wiltshire to receive radiotherapy locally.
    The Radiotherapy appeal target is £2.9 million and to date has reached £1,190,834.
    My target is £500 and to date I’ve raised £305 with a good old donation sheet. But now that I've made it easy to pay over the internet, let's see by how much I can beat my target.
    All the funds I raise will go to the appeal (no costs) and Brighter Futures Radiotherapy will get the 25% tax reclaim. If I could raise another £521 they would get £1000, so please be generous.

      Well the weather could have been drier but we all completed the walk. In fact it was really enjoyable. Thank you so much for your support. I am delighted to say that I raised a total of £1263.11 and have collected it all except for the JustGiving payment which takes 10 days to come through. I'm told the groundworks are underway and the 2 radiotherapy units should be operational within 2 years - at a cost of almost £3 million - all paid for by voluntary donation. Thank you again for your contribution

      I've reached £936 already. So, thanks to my friends and family's amazing generosity and with 11 days still to go I am going to top double my target. Most people have preferred to offer their donations by post; hence the figure on the JustGiving site. Keep the funds rolling in and donate with JustGiving or email me with your offer. Thanks

      I only launched this 3 hours ago and I'm already up to £605, so £1000 (after the 25% tax rebate) is looking very achievable. Keep the money rolling in, please., It's a facility any of us and our families may have to take advantage of.
