    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.

    Story

    Darius Nenius, 45, and his mother Irena were made homeless two weeks ago when his benefits were stopped and he ran out of money.

    Irena, 87, suffers with disability and dementia and was forced to sleep at the side of a rat infested canal overnight with her son with nothing more than a blanket after being refused shared accommodation as it was already at capacity.

    ‘It is my duty to care for my mother,’ he said. ‘We just don’t know what to do now. We need help, desperately. Look at us. I can’t go to work, people just say I’m lazy. But if I leave my mum for a long time and something might happen, she doesn’t speak English. This is horrible. I cannot leave her. '

    All proceeds will go towards Darius and Irena in the hope that they can find somewhere safe to live, get back on their feet, and so that care can be provided for Irena to assist Darius.

      Thank you to everyone that has contributed so far. It is really a testament to the great people out there that have sent in donations to help Irena & Darius. Metro News have also very kindly followed up with an article about the ongoing fundraisers; https://metro.co.uk/2018/08/02/fundraiser-launched-woman-dementia-87-forced-sleep-streets-7789022/ I'm also in contact with the charity in Birmingham that is helping Darius & Irena to arrange a transfer of what has been raised to get this to them ASAP. More to follow soon!

    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!
