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.
Here at Veteran Tree Care, we have been fortunate enough to have the support of many charities.
In the past the charities have aided to put our lives into order; giving us the chance to progress forward, giving those within Veteran Tree Care a sense of purpose.
I have no shame in admitting that I suffer from PTSD. Being my own boss in the great outdoors, away from 'normal' society, has provided me with a outlet for my 'bantering' skills alongside my fellow veterans. This is considered my idea of normal (although, some may argue that suffering from PTSD is not normal).
As a veteran we all face our own struggles and so with this in mind, we are delighted to inform you that Veteran Tree Care has decided to become a registered charity, with every intention of expanding and encompass all aspects of tree care.
The aim is to give those veterans suffering, a purpose and the opportunity to specialise within the field of tree surgery. We WILL be working alongside our veterans to train and qualify them in every 'ticket', diploma and accredited qualification to enable them to regain a sense of purpose.
We will most importantly, enable those grafters to once again provide for their families and make sure that they have the opportunity to put food on a happy family table.
We will continue to ask for the support of the charities who have helped us previously and thank them for the bottom of our hearts for the help they have previously provided this business.
We will shortly be receiving our charity registration number and will keep you updated with our progress.
In the mean time, if you know of a veteran send them our way.
Most importantly, we are still open for business. In fact, we are so committed to supporting others that we are offering a 20% discount to OAP's and Veterans for the foreseeable future.
