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.


Many of us know Agnes, Iain & Kirsten, some might know Iain through his work at Machrihanish Golf Club, some will know Agnes through Campbeltown Grammar School and her endless hard work she does for CGS4Gambia, helping others. Kirsten will be known among her school and college friends and her work as a lifeguard, and all of them will be known by the wonderful community of Campbeltown and Argyll. Sadly a huge fire has burnt Machrihanish Golf Club to the ground, this was their home, they lived above the club. Everything is gone. We can only imagine how devastated they feel. We can not replace all their precious memories, but we can help get them back on their feet with the basics. They will need clothes, toiletries, electrics, computer etc just to start. Please help, there is never a good time for a disaster like this, but it is even harder to cope with as Christmas approaches. The family have not had a good year, and this is a tragic end to 2018. Dig deep folks, lets try and do the best we can to help them.

    A message from Agnes "It is now 4 weeks since we lost our home and all our possessions and we are still truly humbled by the support shown to us as a family. There are not enough words to express our gratitude to all of you who have contributed to this page, sent messages or helped in any other way. Everybody’s generosity has been quite overwhelming. Thanks also to you Fiona for setting this up for us. Love to all of you for a happy 2019. Iain, Agnes and Kirsten xxx"

    Wow what can I say, we are just £200 away from the target. Immensely happy that we have been able to achieve this. Thank you to everyone who has donated. Sorry been a bit lax over Christmas, but will get thank you notes to everyone. Agnes has been in touch and I know they are all very moved. Been an emotional time for them, but made easier with everyone's support. Thank you.

I am a personal friend of Agnes and have worked alongside her with our charitable work in The Gambia. Over the years i have come to know her family and friends. I can honestly say she is one in a million with a heart of gold always trying to help others.
