    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Christmas should be a magical time. Sadly, for some families Christmas can be a time of difficulty caused by money worries - especially if you have little or no income and excited children with big hopes.
    No parent wants their children to miss out at this special time of the year for little ones - with your donations we can the families provide a magical Christmas for their loved ones.
    We are open to any ideas from local people and groups if they have ideas about how they would like the money spent - and of course some help wouldn't go amiss
    By donating you are helping us to provide toys, vouchers, hampers and financial support to the families, elderly and children of our village.
    Thanks for reading, please dig deep

      We have had a fantastic response from the people and businesses of Wilsden, over £250.00 raised in our first day and offers of hampers, VIP Santa tickets, free Christmas wrapping paper. The Telegraph and Argus are running the story over he next couple of days We have held talks with other local businesses who are keen to help, so more news coming soon. For anyone wanting to donate cash, please pop your donation into an envelope and drop it in to The New Inn, and why not have a pint while your there?
