Weʼre raising £5,000 to help elderly neighbours

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.

Story

Our elderly neighbours are kind, friendly, and trusting people; unfortunately, they have been taken advantage of by rogue workmen.

The workmen led them to believe that they had repaired our roof to prevent damp and that they would need similar work. They were quoted over £1000 for the initial work, which is substantially more than it should have cost. Following this, the workmen asked for a further £4000 for completed and ongoing work, which my neighbours gave them.

When the men asked for bank details, my neighbours began to realise what was happening and asked us about the builders, finding out that we had not used them before. Sadly, they had already given the workmen £5000 out of their savings, which they cannot afford to be without.

The police have been involved and one of the men has been arrested, but it is very unlikely that our neighbours will get their money back.

They were unfairly targeted due to their age and vulnerability. So, we set up this justgiving page to raise some, or all, of the lost money back, to go straight to our lovely neighbours who did not deserve this.
