    Weʼve raised £140 to publish a local interest book

    Funded on Thursday, 15th August 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    I have been researching the Jebb family of Ellesmere for some local talks and have been fascinated by them. Eglantyne Jebb and her sister Dorothy Buxton are famous for launching an international charity in the wake of the First World War, but they are not the only members of the family to have achieved great things. Together, this remarkable clan used their position of relative privilege to make life significantly better for so many people.

    During my research, I have explored the places that were familiar to them and have taken lots of photographs. I would love to share their story and raise the profile of this amazing family who were a real credit to Ellesmere. Will you help me to raise the funds to publish a small illustrated book?

      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
