Story

I’ve been in my house for almost 11 years, it is my home, my safety and security and I love it, but it needs a new roof. The leaks have been repaired as much as possible but it has come to the point where roofers are telling me it’s beyond repair. The only option now is to replace the whole thing. For at least 7 years now I’ve been trying to come up with the £5,000 to get it done and the danger now is that water could start running into the electrics, which would be catastrophic.

So far I’ve been unsuccessful in trying to come up with the funds, due to being diagnosed with a chronic illness, and being unable to work since then. I’ve been on a low income with no spare funds for even basic repairs (broken windows, leaky taps and radiators, etc) for all of that time.

I am now asking for contributions towards the new roof and I would be very grateful for any donation, no matter how small. Thank you all in advance.

    It seems I'm a long way off my target. One of the issues with replacing the entire roof is the complexity and cost of scaffolding, so there is a minimum cost and no roofers are willing to even carry out repairs without scaffolding. But, the bathroom is on a more accessible level and I may be able to implement Plan B to get just the most basic repairs to stop the leak into the lights (as in the video), with everyone's consent. Posting this here in hope of my anonymous donor seeing it. I'll contact others individually. Thank you all again :)

    Unfortunately it looks like I won't be able to raise the funds I need in time, so I've decided to cancel this campaign. I am very grateful to those who tried to help me out by donating - I'll be in touch with each of you individually to arrange a refund. Thanks again for your willingness to help me.
