£155raised of £2,000 target by 8 supporters

    Weʼve raised £155 to Help a young family after thieves stole their livelihood.

    Funded on Sunday, 18th December 2016

    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.


    On Wednesday 16th November 2016 our son-in-law's van was broke into and the thieves stole his tools that he needs to work.
    Wayne Lowley is a very hard working 25 year old young man who just started his own business up a few months ago, he has a 2yr old son who he works endlessly for.
    These thieves have totally devastated all of the family, to see a young family who has always worked the right way, destroyed, has been more upsetting to us all.
    I have asked people to share my status on Facebook to try and get his tools back and to find out if anyone could help with finding the thieves. As a joiner he needs the tools and is having to let people down who needs jobs doing and it is hurting him as he hates letting people down.
    I know my grandson is to young to understand but it is upsetting for him to see his parents worrying about things.
    If anyone is unsure and thinks this is a scam and wants to put their mind at ease then please contact Durham Police UK with crime number CRI 00022899.
    Please help this young family to start rebuilding their lives, especially at this time of year.
    One act of kindness could do this.
    If this funding goes over the target, then the rest will be donated to the Neonatal Unit at University hospital of North Durham as their niece Jessica (our grand-daughter) was born with breathing difficulties, she is now nearly 7 months.
    I hope they smile again soon, like in the photo.
    Thank you so much for taken The time to read this
    The Bulmer and Lowley Family.

      Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far. Wayne, Chrissy and 2yrs old Tyler can't believe the support they are getting, there is still a long way to go. Wayne is still working for his family but he is finding it very hard as he still hasn't got any of the power tools he needs. Could people please share this page then hopefully he will be able to support the family just the way he did when he started his own business up two months ago. Thank you.

    Hello everyone. My name is Dawn and I am trying to raise money for my son-in-law who's tools were stolen out of his van on 16th November 2016. After trying on Facebook to get his tools back, without any luck. This has devastated all the family, especially at this time of year.
