    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    My oldest and best mate, Ben, is a self-employed gardener who has worked so hard to run his own business. This last week he became a victim of cyber fraud at the cruelest of times and is getting absolutely no help from the authorities to gain back more than £5,000 that was taken from his business account. If we could all donate a small amount we could help to replace what was taken in a cowardly act at a time of year that's meant to be about communities, happiness and generosity, whatever you can manage will be hugely appreciated by Ben and his family.

    Thank you in advance!

      3% of £5,000 in 24 hours, that is incredible and I have to say that Ben and his family were overwhelmed when they saw the generousity being shown, thank you so so much. Never thought we would get anywhere near the total to be honest, but if we have 30 days and can do 3% a day we will get all but there which would be a miracle! Cannot thank those who have donated enough, and please please please, even the smallest donation will a difference I promise, and if failing that please do share - its free and could lead to a donation. Thanks again x
