£157raised of £200 target by 15 supporters

    Weʼve raised £157 to reimburse Jay for the copies of The Big Issue which were stolen from him.

    Funded on Tuesday, 10th October 2017

    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.

    Story

    Jay is homeless and sells copies of The Big Issue at the top of my road, to try to raise enough money each day to pay for a bed for the night. He has to buy the papers himself, and stands outside in all weathers hoping to sell some copies.

    Unfortunately someone recently stole his whole batch of newspapers, which was worth over £100 to Jay, not only leaving him with nothing to sell, but also leaving him seriously out of pocket.

    Some of my friends expressed a desire to try to help, so I am setting up this page for anyone who would like to make a small donation towards recouping his losses. A copy of The Big issue is £2.50, but any donation at all would be so gratefully received. (If we could exceed the £100 that would be a wonderful bonus, as Jay really does deserve a break in life.)

    Many thanks,

    Caroline

      Typical that you think of others even in the midst of such strife.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
