    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.

    Story

    My intention was to raise £500 but that target was smashed within 4 hours of opening the page! In the first 24 hours this has now risen to a staggering £1,000 to donate to an elderly gentleman who was robbed of his savings in Chipping Sodbury this afternoon.
    We would like him to know people still care and he shouldn't have financial stress on top of the physical and emotional stress he's already endured.

      This has been a truly humbling experience for me. Thank you all so, so much for your donations, kind words and support. We have smashed through the £1,000 target in 24 hours which is astonishing! The spirit of Chipping Sodbury will not be beaten! I will update everyone once the funds have been donated to the gentleman who was attacked, for the time being, the Police are keeping his identity anonymous for obvious reasons. Thank you all again, Good always prevails over Evil x
