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.
News article on the 15th December in the early hours of the morning our home suffered a house fire. we were not there as we were away spending some time together in Cornwall. The house is now unihabitable and we will not be able to be in our home for christmas. In the picture here our christmas tree was in the corner and completely disentigrated along with the curtains. we have lost a lot (mostly all) of our belongings as the rest of the house and contents is smoke damaged or fire damaged. we are so grateful that we are safe and that our dogs are ok too as one of our dogs sleeps in the living room where the fire started. We would massively appreciate any support people can offer us in this tragic time for us. We will be living with my partner Lisas dads for christmas as we didnt want to spend christmas in a hotel and our christmas decorations are all damaged so we would like to get some and decorate Lisas dads to make it feel christmassy. We also need to get new clothes and toiletries to help us out until we can settle again from all of this. All of the dogs toys, blankets and food need replacing too. I have no family support so friends are so very important to me and therefore any support would be even more appreciated in these circumstances. We feel so very sad this has happened and especially as its christmas time.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and we thank you so much for any support you can offer.
