Nathan is a very keen fundraiser and volunteers for many different charities whether they are small local charites or national leading charities. In the last 8 years Nathan has generated £7,757.31 for good causes and will continue to give his time and support to those who need it.
Nathan founded the Polegate Scarecrows Community Fund on the 8th of November 2019 after running two successful Scarecrow Festivals in his home town of Polegate.
The Polegate Scarecrow Fesitvals of 2018 and 2019 supported three different local charities raising over £1,500 and Nathan wanted to continue to support local people and their communities. Nathan started planning the very first Scarecrow Festival in 2017 after seeing the nearby Pevensey Villiages Partnership's popular annual event.
Nathan's Scarecrow Festival in 2018 was noticed by the Eastbourne Lions Club and they wished for Nathan to enter their Young Ambassador of the 21st Century competition in which Nathan went on to win and gain £50 sponsorship into the next Scarecrow Festival.
Nathan is always thinking of new income generation methods whilst giving the chance for his supporters to not only donate to a good causes but to have a chance of supporting themselves. As as result of this Nathan started the Lucky 100 Draws which gives members the chance to be in the money whilst promising to donate £100 of the proceeds to a good cause every 2 months.

Nathan also supports a charity close to him through the community fund giving local residents the time and place to meet and engage in social activites whilst raising money for Fight for Sight funding vital reserach into a eye condition he suffers with.
