raised of £300,000 target by 10 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,045 to help Paul & Caryn Cockle pay off their debts. It's now our turn to help them!

    Funded on Wednesday, 30th November 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    We are aiming to ask everyone who can to donate just £1 to help. So we will need to reach a pretty huge audience to achieve this and ask everyone to spread our campaign as far and wide as they can

    For over two years Paul & Caryn have been organising to collect and distribute surplus food to families and individuals, amounting to feeding people 75,000 times. They’ve used their home and garden as a base, and coordinated over 100 volunteers to support people in Chessington and surrounding areas. This has been at great cost to themselves, both financially and while they’re dealing with Caryn’s health emergency.

    They’re now facing eviction from their family home, where they've lived for many years. Their only hope is that enough people will help them pay off their debts to the mortgage company. If we can't raise the full amount, we'll use it towards moving and setting up their new home.

    Please send what you can - however small or large, and post any other offers of help through the Contact button below.

    And please share this message widely in your networks too!

      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 nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      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!

      I'm retired and an environmental activist. I've known Paul for nearly a year now. I've been so impressed by his work with Angels of the Hood distributing surplus food, that I've joined the organisation that supports this work
