    Weʼve raised £345 to help Marius - whose illness has put him in debt and at risk of homelessness

    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.

    Story

    If you shop in Macclesfield you will undoubtedly have seen Marius selling the Big Issue outside of Marks & Spencer. Marius is one of the most polite and kind fixtures on our high street: he is never pushy and always courteous. His warm, friendly manner has won him many friends in our town.

    But Marius needs our help.

    Before Christmas Marius became seriously ill and spent several weeks in hospital. Not being able to work, his wife took over, leaving their two youngest children with friends and neighbours in an effort to keep the rent money coming in.

    Despite their best efforts, Marius and his family have fell considerably behind with the rent. Marius had to beg his landlord not to evict his family due to their missed payments. Luckily his landlord agreed, but insisted that he pay back the rent owed.

    This situation has only worsened following Marius’ wife being admitted to hospital before Easter, forcing him to stay at home and look after his family rather than earning. Add on top of this the fact that Marius is still in constant pain following his hospitalisation, not helped by being on his feet all day.

    Marius still owes considerable back-rent, putting himself and his family at serious risk of being homeless.

    I’ve set up this page to help Marius get back on his feet and secure the roof over his family’s head. Marius came to our country 20 years ago to escape persecution of his Christian beliefs in his own country, and has spent the last 2 decades working diligently to support himself and his growing family. If we as a community can do something to help, I believe we should.

    Any contribution you can make will have a huge impact on Marius and his family. Thank you!
