    Default charity

    Basically, my sister has cancer and has been told she is likely to have a year or so to live. She has a baby that isnt one yet so shes doing like a bucket list to do things with her daughter and record them so although she wont have the memories she will still know that she done it all etc etc.

    The long and short of it is me and the rest of her family would like to raise some money to put towards things like disney land and things like that. Would I need to start a charity or has anyone got any experience with using one of those charities where u split the money between them and the actual person?

    Cheers

    There is a website called Just Giving where you can set up all kinds of sponsorship.
    Sorry to hear your sad news.

    Sorry Leigh to hear your news.....if you and your family who want to raise some funds work with other people, its always a good starting point to get sponsorship. I raised a few hundred recently for Parkinsons uk (have a close friend who suffers with it) by doing a shark dive....i work in a team of 50/60 people who were all glad to donate, so always a good starting point imo......wish you well in raising some funds to help your sister acheive what she wants

    How about sorting out a fish in? Hire out sandy or somewhere and everyone pay a little extra for the weekend and the extra goes to the charity?

    Stickied!

    More than happy to have live links to fundraisers IMO.

    Could I also suggest a sales thread. I for one have a couple of bits and bobs hat I could sell off for the proceeds.

    Leigh - got a pair of browning carp advance rods you can sell on for funds. Not fashionable, but very, very nice rods, and they were the ones I used to catch Mary's Mate if that sweetens the deal. Drop me a PM and I'll sort them out.

    Leigh, Ive just bought a book in the for sale section and the seller has requested I send the funds (25) to you via paypal. Expect to see it in there shortly.

    Duck Billed Hedgehog is clearly a very generous and decent guy.

    Best wishes,
    Jack.

    Edit* money sent 18.54pm today.

    I don't have any rods that have caught any well known fish, nor anything worthwhile to sell, but I have sent some money into your paypal.

    Best Wishes.
