£285raised of £500 target by 13 supporters

    Weʼve raised £285 to help feed low income working families in Biggleswade and surrounding areas this Christmas.

    Funded on Sunday, 18th December 2016

    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 charity.

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


    I started with wanting to donate one of those shoe box gifts that you pack full of little gifts to give to a child in another country for Christmas but the I wondered what help I could give closer to home. After ringing around and asking the mighty Facebook for help I stumbled across PREEN. Amongst other things they run a food bank that helps those who usually fall through the net and don't qualify for help with local councils. Food is donated to low income working families who receive income based benefits. I was one of these people when I was younger but help wasn't available then, but I know how much that help would have meant and would have been the difference between me eating or going hungry, which I often did.
    Many of us are very fortunate compared to others and have probably started stocking up for the festivities this year!! We will no doubt be stuffing our faces and drinking wine and feeling rather festive!!!
    If you could spare anything this Christmas, even £1...... then please please can I ask for your donations.
    Every penny raised will be used to buy all the necessities to give hard working people a great Christmas with their loved ones.
    Thsnkyou for reading my plea xx

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
