Weʼre raising £600 to Help us have our first holiday in 8 years
- Winchester, UK
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.
We are a young couple living in Hampshire UK.
We have both struggled with mental health problems from an early age, which has had a negative effect on the majority of our lives.
We met at our current accommodation, a hostel for people with mental health problems, after escaping from domestic violence and abuse and being homeless.
We grew close as friends, emotionally supporting each other after discovering we had experienced similar abusive situations in the past.
Although we were both emotionally scarred it was clear we were meant to be together.
After both individually working hard in specialist therapy we would love to have some time away together. We both have a great love for the outdoors and would love to explore Europe a bit or explore places in the UK.
We would be so grateful for help to raise enough money to get our passports and be able to have our first holiday in 8 years.
