Weʼre raising £3,000 to 100-year-old war veteran Len Parry, of Skipton, who had his home burgled and his safe containing over £3k in it.
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.
A 100-year-old Yorkshire war veteran who fled Japanese soldiers after being taken prisoner in Singapore during the Second World War, has spoken of his shock and upset after his home was burgled and his safe containing nearly £4,000 was stolen while he was in hospital for a skin cancer operation.
Former RAF pilot Len Parry, of Skipton, was admitted to Bradford Royal Infirmary on February 4, to have a melanoma removed from his head, but had to stay overnight following a fall, and this is when police believe the opportunist thieves struck.
