Weʼre raising £450 to help an elderly lady go on the trips she had saved her hard earned cash to pay for before it was misplaced/stolen 😔

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.
A 77 year old lady named Barbara, who is a regular customer in my charity shop, lost her purse/ had her purse stolen yesterday after leaving my shop. She was understandably very upset and crying outside the shop in the rain when I convinced her to come into the shop where I rang her husband, Baz and the police.
Unfortunatly after speaking to Barbara on the phone this morning, she hasnt found her purse/had it handed in and now that she has calmed down she was able to tell me that she had £450 in her purse which she had taken out of the bank to pay for some little trips that she had booked for her and her husband.
I cant afford to give Barbara the money myself, although I would if I could, so I was hoping I could raise the money on here so that Barbara and her husband dont have to miss out on their little trips.
