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.


Bob was  a  good  man  in life,  although a little hot headed and disorganised (Bob the bag man when it came to filing) he had everyone's interest ahead of his own.      He lived for his work and his family and his  death  has  hit  his  family  both  in  business  and  pleasure  hard  as  it  was  not  his  time  to  go.       His heart gave up suddenly having fought illness for over 20 years.   His youngest daughter and grandson found him in his favourite chair and did all they could to save him.   His daughters and grandson  have  since  found out  he  left  zero  provisions  for  funeral  costs  and  has  unleashed  a  lot  of  extra  burden which now falls in their remit after his death  (which  will  not  necessarily  die  with  him).   His family  are  trying  to  raise  funds  to  allow  him  to  have  a  dignified  funeral.  They are  trying  to  raise  "a  quarter"  of  the  known amount  needed  so  far in order for a funeral to take  place  so those around him can say goodbye.  A quarter of the amount of £5000 is a lot to raise and the family appreciate any support at this difficult time as this was not the usual route to take in these circumstances.      Thank you.
