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 White Horse Wishing Well will this year be giving out their ’12 Gifts of Christmas’ as we did last year. One of those gifts is for a family that have been hit by the worst news anybody can ever receive.
Zoe Clarke from Loughborough has recently been told she has terminal cancer. Zoe has a partner called Kiran who she is engaged to and they have a beautiful 6 year old daughter called Hope. Zoe has had to give up work due to the illness, as has her partner, so he can care for her. This news has destroyed their plans to get married in the future and have Hope as their bridesmaid.
We have been approached quite recently by a friend of the family, to see if we can help pull off a wedding at short notice before Christmas to give Zoe the special day she thought would never happen. This is not something we could say no to, so we have decided to help the family have the most memorable day possible, so Zoe gets to see Hope as her bridesmaid.
Unfortunately, as this wasn’t a planned gift, we had allocated most of our funds to our current DIY SOS project in Barrow Upon Soar. We put a Just Giving appeal out for that and many of you donated to that appeal, of which we are so grateful. So to post another is asking a lot and this is not something we like to do often, but to pull of the perfect wedding we are again asking for your help.
We are pulling in lots of favours from friends to make this wedding happen but we still require funds to give Zoe, Kiran & Hope, the wedding day they had dreamed of. Amazingly, we have already been donated a wedding dress for Zoe from Bradgate Brides in Anstey, Leicestershire and we have ticked a few other boxes as well. However, to make sure we can cover all costs, we are raising money for their special day. If you would like to donate, please do so below or if you could offer something to help with the wedding day, then get in touch with us through our social media pages. Any money that we raise that is not used, will be donated to the family to help with their financial struggles that cancer brings with it.
Lets see if we can give Zoe, Kiran & Hope, the most magical Christmas wedding possible.
Thank you all so much.
