    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.


    Welcome to my crowdfunding page.

    I'm Matt and I'm 24. I have created this crowdfunding page to help out a very close friend and the parent of a lad for our local football team. On Saturday 5th November I received a text late at night from Paul saying he wouldn't be at the game due to some hooligans setting off a firework rocket through their letterbox. This then sparked a fire downstairs in their house which caused catastrophic damage and has ruined their family home, all their belongings and their lives. I am hoping the good people within our society would be willing to help them rebuild their lives by donating anything possible and where possible to this page. Nobody deserves to have this to happen to them and I will literally not stop until I have helped as much as possible. I'm not asking for miracles, just generosity and also to spread the word of this page.

    I've been told over the next 6 weeks the house is gonna be repaired. This will take them to one week before Christmas, so I'm hoping we can raise enough and present them with a cheque so they actually have a Christmas to remember and to lift there spirits up. I've never done anything like this before for anyone so all your help and donations will be gratefully appreciated.

    Thank you for your time.

      So today is the last day to support Paul and his family through this tragic event. So far £890 has been raised and we are £110 off our target. If you could please share this high and low, any more donations would be appreciated and also would be a massive help! Thank you to everyone who has donated already and has been apart of this fundraiser since the beginning. Thank you! Matt

      Thank you to the recent donations we have had! I cannot thank you enough... the money raised will definitely help the family get most of their things back as well as helping out with Christmas coming as well. I'd also like to thank the Ashfield Rugby club for seeing this and sharing the post as well. Please continue to share and spread the word of this page as we are nearly at our target! Once again thank you so much for you generosity and support!

      A huge thank you to all those who have donated! We have now hit our half way milestone and I can't thank all of you enough for your generosity on this! The family are really overwhelmed with the support of the public through this difficult time! Please keep sharing and spreading the work so we can hit that target and possibly break the £1,000 barrier. Thank you.

      A donation from the Monday 5 O'clock Sherwin Centre Footy guys. Paul's a great bloke who can never do enough to help. Hope this goes some way to helping him out.
