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.
This is Peggy, she is 101. Peggy has one friend who tries hard to keep her company and help her with everyday tasks. Her friend put her in touch with us and we got her info for a stairlift, grab rails, a new cooker and local activities. Peggy comes to our coffee morning now and thrashes the "young 'uns" at dominoes.
We are not funded to do this but we know there are many more people like Peggy and as yet another support service closes at the start of July, it's very important we step up and help.
To do this, we need your support.
