Weʼve raised £1,004 to Raise Funds for the Silloth Youth Fund in the Memory of Barbara Donald
- Silloth-on-Solway, Silloth, United Kingdom
- Children and youth
- Time left
- Funded on Sunday, 11th December 2016
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
My Awesome Mam, Barbara Donald sadly passed away on the 23rd of September after a very short but hard fight against illness.
In her memory we would like to raise funds for one of her many Passions.. Young People - particularly in Silloth where she lived.. but all Young People. Mam was always saying "there is nothing for the kids to do here".. so we are hoping to use the funds we raise in her memory to increase activities for the 11-18 year old age group. The aim is to give them a chance to find something to be Passionate about..
We have many many ideas, a few of which are
* Try Out Days at Golf (much loved Sport of Mam)
* Cycling Summer School Days with Athletes and Coaches
* Equipment for the After-School Friday Club
* Bringing Inspirational People to talk and demonstrate things to them
* Funding kids to attend summer camp who can't afford it
and much more
This won't be just handing out money - the Youngsters will have to contribute something towards receiving what they would like - giving to receive.. giving their time, energy, knowledge, skills to help others will in turn help them receive funding to find their dreams..
Some ideas of their contribution could be
*they teach their vast IT (Phone/Ipad/Email) skills to the large Elderly Community..
*Managing a Bird Feeding Station..
*Walking the Dog's of Elderly People who need help etc...
We also would like to do an Annual Fund Faising event to keep this Fund going in Mam's memory..
Mam loved life and was full of energy and always looking to reach out and help anyone she could.. and we her friends and family would like to keep her spirit and energy going and help make Silloth have more for the 11-18 year olds to do here..
She would 100% love this idea in her memory and we appreciate any donation anyone would like to give in her Memory

We are amazed and grateful for the generous donations we have received so far for the Charitable Fund we are starting in memory of Mam/Barbara.. We received the astounding amount of ₤523 of donations at the service celebrating her life and with the other donations received directly to the account we are very close to the primary aim of ₤1000 Thank you so much to everyone who has donated - once we reach the ₤1000 it will go into a registered Community Account and the Youth Fund can begin proper
