    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    Please support us in helping the village of Glenridding, which has been devastated by flooding for a second time last night. If anyone has visited Glenridding they will know it is a picturesque village at the end of Ullswater with an enormous amount of charm & beauty. It has been hit hard by the storms, the village has been cut off and the army is there assisting. We are struggling to cope with the destruction we’ll face when we get there.

    Please, if you can help us by helping the people who live there..... Help put Glenridding back together again. We have a cottage there & the village is close to our hearts. It is such a beautiful village which relies heavily on tourism, their information centre has been destroyed, footpaths & roads destroyed & livelihoods damaged.

    Any support would be appreciated & it will make a huge difference to the people there & their beautiful village. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts x

    We'll be giving any money raised to the mountain rescue team & ask them to distribute it where & to those who need it most.

      Thank you to all who have donated so far. We're amazed by the kindness. It's flooding again in Glenridding & another bad storm forecast for Christmas Eve, just tragic. If you'd like to help us help a village in desperate need, please help xx

      Thank you to those who have donated so far for their generosity & kindness. Gutted we didn't make it there to help Glenridding today. We were defeated by the weather. I can't imagine what it feels like being flooded & now snow!
