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.


I am David, a self employed Gardener from Derbyshire, I work at Care Homes, Stately homes and in peoples residential property's. I have a lifetime of horticultural knowledge and expertise and have ran my business for 4 or 5 years now to support myself through my university studies.

Sadly last weekend when I was staying with an elderly relative ironically who has taught me all I know about gardening I was robbed through by gypsies who had temporarily camped out near to his house on the park. They broke into my vehicle and stole everything I own to operate on a day to day basis, from my DAB radio to My STIHL Hedge Trimmers and Strimmer.

Here is a list of what was stolen:

STIHL Hedge Trimmers

STIHL Strimmer / Brushcutter

Makita 18 Volt Drill and Drill bit set.

Pure DAB Digital Radio

Hozelock Sprayer and chemicals.

Secetars, Sheers, even my shorts I wear for work - but not my boots at least.

I have worked truly god awfully hard over the last 4 or 5 years to get to where I am now with my business to provide the fantastic service I do at such competitive rates I sadly do not have commercial insurance or the like, an error I am now ruing but ordinarily they would be locked away in the stone shed overnight.

I have merely done this in the hope some kind and wealthy soul with a love of gardening might help me get back on my feet - and id be more than willing to cut the odd hedge in return.


Thanks for taking the time out to read through and thanks.

Here is a picture of my first commercial job in 2013, and the other on the page is one of my customers.
