£325raised of £500 target by 15 supporters

    Weʼve raised £325 to To help pay bills ive lost my livelyhood/business as a car smashed into my shop demolishing the front and damaging most of my stock.

    Funded on Friday, 6th October 2017

    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.


    As you will be aware a car reversed into my shop on evening of Monday 4th sept. it totally demolished the shop front and wrecked the majority of my stock etc.leaving a trail of devistastion.

    I have received so many messages of condolences and best wishes and offers to help clear up its overwelming and thank you. Unfortunately due to thr vast amount of damage and the nature of my stock (thr majority being bespoke hand crafted itemd antiques designer and bespoke clothing and jackets it is a very sepcialised area and as yet nothing can be touched.

    I was made aware of this website as the accident has taken away my livelyhood leaving me with no income and no way of earning anything from my business.

    The total shock of what has happened is beyond belief. I am devastated and cant quite get my head round whats occurred yet so thankful that there were no injuries.
    My business has taken me over 5 years to build up and has very recently been lovingly refurbished and clothing was added.
    All my pieces are bespoke each one has been lovingly created, be it furniture jackets lamps or soft furnishing.
    Most of my stock has been destroyed or damaged in the accident and it will be months and month before the mess is sorted out and insurance paid so i cant even start to try to rebuild my livelyhood and business.

    I am totally and utterly devastated and just dont know what to do to try and survive over next few months whilst everything is sorted.
    Thank you for taking time to read this

    I fully intend to reuse any monies (raised once my insurance is paid) to help other people or businesses in need. So donations will not only help me at this desparate time but will also benefit others as times goes on. Below are a few of the pictures which dont actually do the amount of damage justice. The loss assessor described it as looking like a bomb had gone off! I just feel sick and cry everytime i have got to go into the shop and notice something else ruined. And to add to everything i have now been disgnosed with acute stress and reactive depression, i cant sleep through worry and images.

      Hi i own a shabby chic antique and clothing shop. which has been built up over the years. I recently 2 months ago put all my savings and money into refurbishing the shop & bring in a new range of clothing & soft furnishing all bespoke. Sadly on 4th September a car wiped it out!
