£60raised of £1,000 target by 2 supporters

    Funded on Friday, 25th November 2016

    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.


    Last Christmas I decided to place a Christmas tree in the local cemetery for my nephew who sadly passed away only 18 days old.
    The tree was a place for comfort for people to hang baubles and a place for people to relate to on the morning of Christmas.
    Unfortunately due to council policies in Dumfries and Galloway there is not allowed to be any temporary structures placed in a cemetery therefore it must be a permanent fixture.

    My solution for the years to come is to plant a tree, place a bench and create and watch develop our very own tree of love, one that we can relate to not only at Christmas but at Easter, birthdays and so on.

    What I need from the community and anyone who is wishing to help is a small donation of any size, something that can help fund this project, it would be very much appreciated.

    With each and every donation please leave in the comments a name in which I can place on a board, and place in the local library once the project is complete, this way it will keep a record as to why the tree and bench is there and who we are remembering why doing so.

    Any and all help is much appreciated.

    Please if you can spare a few pounds, thank you. ❤️
