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

There are currently nearly 71 million people in the world displaced from their homes, the highest number since World War II. Ordinary men, women, and children just like us who had homes and jobs and their children went to school.

Community Sponsorship is a government scheme which supports communities to welcome a refugee family to build a new life in the UK. Resettling refugee families through this route has proven to be highly beneficial both to the family and the community group supporting them. It is an opportunity to bring a community together to use their skills, expertise and shared compassion to make a real difference.

BIGG Welcome has formed as the Community Sponsorship Group for Biggleswade and one of our roles is to raise £15000 to help support the family for the first year.
