    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    David and Elizabeth Ketley are in their 60s and 70s. They single-handedly work to revert 128 acres (52 hectares) from farmland back to woodland.

    Dunge Valley is in Kettleshulme, in the High Peak National Park. The vast majority of the park is farmland or pine woodland - poor for wildlife and diversity. They plant a wide variety of domestic and imported trees to best suit the environment and wildlife.

    They have worked on this amazing for over 20 years with little help. With their age, it is becoming increasingly difficult for them to maintain the land alone.

    The first goal of £5,000.00 will hire help to repair walling, fencing and other critical maintenance.

    Anything more will go toward extending the current woodland into the farmland. Purchasing tree saplings and fencing to segregate areas from farm animals.

    Assistance will be needed to nurture the saplings to maturity over many years. Anything given is a great help and a huge boost to the local wildlife and environment.

        David and Elizabeth Ketley are my parents. I see them struggle every year. I help where I can, but financial assistance is what they really need to hire permanent help.
