Weʼre raising £2,000 to help to fund vital CCTV and any other equipment and resources to ensure the safety of our local wildlife at Hebburn/Wardley lake & quarry
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.
A year ago i set up a facebook page and added Debra Bowman as admin as we both shared a love and passion for our local wildlife. The page has gone from strength to strength since day one and we now have almost 1000 members. With the help of these valuable members, and additional admins who have been added along the way we have all done a fantastic job at looking after our wildlife on the lake, in particular out beautiful swan family who are very vunerable to the various elements (both natural & sadly man made) they continually face to survive.
In light of yesterday’s devastating news of the death of our resident male swan George, we need to continue to do our utmost to help our wildlife. We would love to be able to raise enough to fund the installation of CCTV to protect our local wildlife on the lake. We are so very lucky to have them on our doorstep.
This will be an ongoing fundraising page. Initially, it will hopefully help to raise money towards CCTV and carry on in the future to provide anything else needed to give our wildlife the best chance of survival for years to come.
So please, whatever you can afford will go a long way. Every single pound counts. If every member of our facebook page alone could spare just £1 we would have £1,000 straight away. If you can spare any more.... £2... £5. £10... then that would be amazing and would help us to get the vital equipment all the sooner to help our treasured wildlife.
All of our wilflife but in particular our beautiful swan family have given and continue to give so much pleasure to everyone. So for the sake of poor George who tragically lost his life yesterday, and Mildred and their surviving 6 cygnets... please give whatever you can.
Thank you so very much
