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.


After the heavy storm on 27th July, local family Sara, Jude, Minerva (2) and Constance (8 months) were left devastated by damage caused to their family home after it was struck by lightning.

Unfortunately the damage has not been covered by insurance and the family are finding more and more damaged electrical items, along with a huge hole in the roof, blown up chimney stack, broken patio and damaged garden items., wghich is currently covered with a tarpaulin.

We’re raising money to help the family literally put the roof back over their heads. Any donation whatever the size would be gratefully received.
