    Weʼve raised £310 to Raise funds to replace materials and equipment lost in a fire.

    Funded on Saturday, 31st March 2018

    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 nonprofit.

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


    My mum Sandra Taylor had to give up work due to poor health but despite this attained a BA hons in Textiles in 2016. Her dream has always been to produce and teach sewing arts and crafts in her community and she saved for over 30 years to build and stock a small workshop in her garden. On Friday 23rd February there was fire and her workshop and everything in it was lost.

    She has been running ,on a voluntary basis, popular sewing classes for adults and children which have been held in her workshop and the local library. Now all her materials are lost and her workshop burnt out the future of these are in jeopardy and my mum is devastated. My mum's courses bring so much joy to her and her students so I am raising money to help her buy new equipment

    Thank you so much for reading my page. Any donation would mean everything to my mum.
