    Weʼve raised £16,439 to help April and Josh rebuild their home after a fire

    Bristol, UK
    Funded on Saturday, 4th January 2020

    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.

    Story

    April and Josh spent the last year building a narrowboat to live on, on 22nd September a fire has destroyed all but the hull. We are raising some money to help them rebuild their life, as their insurance only allowed 3rd party cover. April has burns to her hand requiring skin grafts and Josh has been in intensive care with severe burns. If you can help them in any way, please do.

    Here is the story in the local news

    On hearing that the boat is not salvageable, the engine, all their posessions, tools, clothes and the interior structure is gone, we have increased the target to £25k, in the hope that they can find another place to live, afloat or otherwise.

      Almost two thirds of the way there now! Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness. We will get some updates next week from the hospital and post here for you as I’m sure you want to know how they are getting on in recovery. Please do keep sharing this in your social media and we will get there, maybe even further...?
