£262raised of £500 target by 14 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to Help a lady called Betty purchase tools & a pull along trolley. This lady keeps the Shorey Bank area in Darwen clean & clears paths/rubbish.

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.


Betty spends everyday hail, rain or shine looking after the Shorey Bank area with no help from the local council. She clears pathways, collects litter large & small left by people. I've even helped her retrieve shopping trolleys etc from the river. Shes cleaned and returned the trolleys to Lidl, who do not even offer her a shopping voucher for her troubles! So I would just like to make her life/job a little easier by providing tools and hopefully some kind of electric trolley to help her carry things to a fro from her house. I've seen her dragging burnt out scooters etc to place near the Peabody Street car park for the council to collect.Any small donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Hi everyone who has donated so far. We are doing really well, with also a promise from the owner of the ground works team, (who recently completed their work on the Robin Bank cottages and flats) that he will donate £250 if we can hit £250. We have now managed that. So fingers crossed we shall hit our target of £500. This will help Betty with tools, but especially some sort of trolley. Thanks again xx
