£1,260raised of £2,500 target by 64 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,260 to Help the islanders of St Maarten in the Caribbean who have been devastated by the worst hurricane in living memory.

    Ashbourne, United Kingdom
    Funded on Saturday, 7th October 2017

    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.


    The Caribbean has been devastated by the worst hurricane in living memory and it will take time and money to repair the damage. The islanders rely on tourism to make a living and this winter, their usual season for tourists, that may be impossible. I have a personal friend who has lost his house and car and other possessions, and like thousands of others will have to rebuild his life ..... I would like to help him and others on the island by raising cash to help with that rebuild.

    If you have ever traveled toThe Caribbean you will know how friendly, welcoming and generous the islanders are. Help me to show that we in the UK cruising community can also be generous in our support.

    Anything you can spare will be most welcome, and I will be liasing with the islands government, through my friend Rufino Arrindell ( to ensure any gifts are spent on needy causes.

    Day 2 and £1000 donated, thank you so much ..... I have increased the target slightly since we are doing so well .....
