    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    I need a little help to make my Grandma's last wish come true. Her name's Freda Tomlinson, she's 79 and the kindest, sweetest lady. She's spent her entire life looking after other people and animals, as an NHS nurse, as a parent and foster parent, as a charity worker and as a homecarer for my Grandad before he died. She gives and gives, I want to give something back to her.

    One of six sisters, four of them have now died, she desperately wants to visit her last remaining sister, Margaret, who lives in Florida one last time. Sadly, they're both terminally ill. Freda has a "bucket list" and this is the last item on it. On 3rd March she will be 80 years old, if we could possibly make this happen before then, it would mean so much to her.

    I've never tried crowdfunding before, so please help prove my Dad wrong and show this is not a waste of time! I know the world is full of kind people, if 250 people gave £10, we could do this!

    Many, many thanks for reading this, if you can afford to donate anything, £5 or £10 would be so, so appreciated, or if you could please share this on social media, that would be fantastic too. Thank you so much, from Freda and me! xxx

      We've raised £85 so far, which is brilliant, and thank you so much to the four people who donated, but this will not be enough to help Freda. If you are able to share this online, please help, not many people have seen this page and I know if word gets out we have a chance of doing it x Thank you xxx

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
