Weʼre raising £100 to Raise funds to purchase home security aids for the elderly and vulnerable
- Maltby, UK
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.
On Wednesday night 18/06/2018 in Maltby South Yorkshire around 11.30pm someone put my nan's living room window through. Conveniently out of the direct sight of her security cameras. We thought it was an isolated incident and it was therefore dealt with it.
However... around 1am Saturday morning 21/06/2018 they have struck again, putting through the bedroom window, again out of sight of the cameras. Except this time it appears they've attempted to gain attention first and when she has opened the blinds they've thrown the rock, smashing the window and hitting my nan in the face. We believe that the house may have have been targeted as a case of mistaken identity/address.
See here for the itv interview/video with Carol
Currently recovering from the incident Carol my nan is now trying to get back to living a normal independent life with support from her family and friends.
The Aim of this fundraiser is not to support my nan but is to help as many vulnerable people locally in providing security aids for there home that they might not currently have in place or even able to afford so that they can live in mind that they are secure day and night.
So this could be to fund for example cold calling stickers,uv pens, panic alarms. If enough funds are raised it could purchase more sophisticated items such as security lighting,locks,chains and alarms to name a few.
