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.
I have decided to open a Just Giving page for people/ companies that would like to donate money to EACH and NICU, NNUH in support of our Open Farm Sunday. This year my husband and I are hosting Open Farm Sunday. This is a fun and educational day out which gives lots of families the opportunity to get on the farm and learn all about where their food comes from.
The day itself takes months of preparation and expense. We recover some expenses by refreshments, car park fee but strive to make sure we also donate as much as possible to EACH and also the Neonatal Intensive Care, at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.
We are hosting the day in memory of our friends little boy called James. James died in 2017, 5 days before his 1st birthday. James received care from EACH and the hospice gave his parents and siblings such fantastic support during the darkest times in their lives.
We are also raising money for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital after they gave our son Jenson such tremendous care in the first few weeks of life, and also the care they gave our friends baby girl Hannah. Hannah was born weighing 1lb 7oz, and is now 10lb 10oz. The road for Hannah has been long and continues to be bumpy - but she is here and that is because of the care the NICU gave to her.
As a business we make no money from the Open Farm Sunday, in fact we cover much of the costs ourselves. We are simply passionate about sharing the farm with people who otherwise may not have the chance to see the cows and where milk and other produce comes from. And whilst doing so we really hope people/companies will be super generous and donate to these two very worthwhile charities.
In memory of baby James Thorndyke, gone from this world but never forgotten xx
