    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.


    Hello! My name is Claire Whiteley.

    Having recently lost my job ( which presents new opportunities) I am now about to start voluntary work at Ritsona Refugee camp in Greece. I will be working with Lighthouse Relief in the children's space in the camp. Whilst there I will be raising money to buy resources for the women and children from shoes and gloves ( for people who arrive with nothing) to arts and craft materials and toys for the children's space. This space gives the children a chance to play and simply be children after surviving war, being forcibly displaced and travelling to find refuge. The children's space provides some normality where the children can both learn and play. The funds raised will be used to buy whatever is needed whether this is finger paint and paper or food and clothes.

    I will regularly update this page and my blog with how funds raised are being used.

      Your money has also bought 8 new jigsaws. These are really popular with the children and many will spend an hour or more on jigsaws, and now they have some without missing pieces. Thank you

      So to date I have spent £135. You have bought bulbs for the parent's group which offer parents some quiet and reflective time. 35 pairs of gloves as it gets colder - many of the children don't have coats, shoes, hats, gloves and scarves so this is the start of winter warming. Craft for photo frames for the children to give their parents and to make snow globes (pictures will follow) and the paper and materials to display the children's work on the containers which make indoor play space in the cold. Thank you
