Welcome to the Jack Dowding Foundation. This site is dedicated to raising funds and awareness to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). This is a charity that is determined to create a world without type 1 diabetes.

The site was built shortly after the tragic passing of Jack Dowding, 20 who also suffered from the condition for several years. Jack sadly died through complications relating to his illness and this site is setup not only as a memory of him but also to spread awareness to others.

Fund Raising Events

Fund raising is a crucial part to the JDRF – and maybe you fancy having a go yourself or with some friends? We are planning several events as part of Jack’s memory and hope to raise many well needed funds to go towards the charity.

Jack was a very keen darts fan for example so there have been plans to run an annual darts tournament with proceeds going to the JDRF.

It doesn’t have to be a well organised big event. Anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated. Get in contact with us if you have any ideas!
