£455raised of £1,000 target by 18 supporters

    Weʼve raised £455 to buy gifts for children who might otherwise receive nothing this Christmas

    Hartlepool, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 1st December 2016

    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.


    The problem is quite simple. Some children will not receive any presents to open on Christmas morning.

    Complete Money Care is owned by Grahame Coles & Lester Corbett. Over the years we have been fortunate enough to afford many presents for our own children as they grew up and have enjoyed the magical time of year that is Christmas. We find it heart breaking that there are children who might never understand that magic. Because of this Complete Money Care have historically given and raised money in order to buy gifts for those who might otherwise receive nothing.

    We intend to conduct a number of fund raising activities throughout November and early December. Gifts will be purchased and are usually delivered to the Salvation Army in mid December. The picture is looking after the cake stall in December 2015, which was one of the fund raising events last year.

    In order to ensure the money is spent for the intended purpose Grahame & Lester will go out and buy appropriate presents. These are then delivered to the Salvation Army who will distribute them to those in need. We support the Salvation Army in this way as they do not have any additional agenda other than to distribute the gifts. We personally buy the gifts to ensure that the proceeds are spent as intended.
