£3,290raised of £4,000 target by 116 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,290 to help a family who are living in 1 room and were scammed by a landlord who rented them a house and disappeared with their deposit. No house!

    Funded on Friday, 8th June 2018

    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.

    Story

    We have a family at our school who are currently living in very inadequate and cramped circumstances. By working hard they managed to save £4,000 for a deposit and the first months rent. They visited various houses and thought that they had found the perfect place! The Landlord agreed to rent them the house and they gave him the £4,000. He promised that on receipt of the money he would come on a certain date with a van to move them. He failed to appear!
    The family went to the police who said they could not help them. They have asked for support from various agencies but nobody appears to be willing or able to take on the case.
    They are left with no money to pay this month's rent on their current room and can see no way forward for them or their children.

      We have closed the page as we have raised as much as we can. Due to your generosity the family have a new flat with 3 bedrooms. Tom and I went to the agents to pay the deposit and all was fine. They were a proper agency who had been letting in the area for over 10 years.The family have moved in and are very happy. A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED.
