    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 nonprofit.

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


    Ilkeston Cold Weather Shelter

    Currently there is no provision in the Ilkeston area for homeless people in the coldest months of the year. We know there is a need, and its growing. By donating to this new project you will make a difference and even perhaps save a life.

      A big thank you to everyone who donated, the money raised pays for the staff, electric, gas & water for a week. Originally we planned to be open from Christmas day to Valentine's day, but because of your generosity the shelter can now stay open until the 28th February. A big thank you for making a huge difference.

      Instead of spending the money on Christmas cards I have decided this year to make a donation to the Ilkeston Winter Shelter. Merry Christmas xx

      Decided to cut down on Christmas presents this year, we would rather donate what we would have spent on them to the winter shelter.
