Weʼre raising £5,000 to help fund a replacement lean-to for Karl

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.


My sister in law Ethel and her partner Karl live locally and recently suffered a serious shed fire in their garden which unfortunately spread to their lean-to conservatory, which subsequently had to be taken down as deemed unsafe by the local council

Ethel is a carer for Karl, who suffers from severe mental illness and spends his time each day between the conservatory and sleeping due to his extreme amount of medication he needs along with finding it difficult to integrate with the rest of the family. This space is his sanctuary and since the fire is confused and bewildered which is affecting his condition tremendously.

Unfortunately, due to the property being owned by Cheshire West and Chester Council, the councils buildings insurance does not cover the conservatory which was added years earlier when Karl was in good health.

Ethel and Karl also has a daughter in law and two grandchildren who live with them (one of the grandchildren has special needs and currently attends Hebden Green Special School). He too uses this space for quiet time when the noises in the house with the other members gets too much for him to cope with.

My sister in law is absolutely devastated at what has happened and due to their financial circumstances can see no way forward to be able to cover the cost of replacement.

I would like to be able to raise some money to help rebuild both the conservatory and their lives for them and would love for your help. Thank you.
