    Hull, UK
    Funded on Saturday, 15th September 2018

    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.


    You may have seen this story on Look North this week or in the paper

    Ben is a local roofer and his van was totally destroyed in an arson attack. It was parked right outside his house at the time. His children were asleep in bed, and it was really lucky that the propane gas cylinder in the van did not explode in the fire.

    Let's help Ben to start to re-build his business - the van and the contents were totally destroyed. His insurance will only pay for part of the cost of the van, and he's going to need all the help he can get in beginning to replace the contents and to get back on his feet again.

    Please make a donation, however small, because even small amounts will soon add up and start to make a difference for Ben and his family. I know we are asked to give money so often, but Ben is a local family man, (and ex-student of mine, in fact!) and I would like to think that in Hull we try to look out for one another.
