    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Abingdon Community Events (Oxfordshire) is a local group who helps low-income families within the Abingdon area. Our aim is to help children in the local area receive a Christmas gift, all the children are referred to us by social workers and charities at the moment we have 180 requests. * According to the 2015 IMD, Abingdon has one area (within Abingdon Caldecott ward) that is ranked within the 20% most deprived areas nationally. This area also ranks within the 10% most deprived on Education, Skills, and Training and within the 20% most deprived on Income and on Employment. * According to the latest local measure of child poverty (HMRC, Aug 2014) there was a total of 680 children aged under 16 in low-income families in Abingdon. The rate of children in low-income families varied from 2.6% in Abingdon Dunmore to 24% in Abingdon Caldecott (old ward boundaries) In order to continue this work in Abingdon we need to buy the following items * Selection boxes * Wrapping paper/gift tags * Board Games * Kids toys 0-5, 5-12, and teenager gifts Could you help and put a smile on a child’s face this Christmas? Thank you for taking the time to consider this request which will help us to continue to support our community. With very best wishes and many thanks Tracey and Sgt Desmond Abingdon Community Events
