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.
We are here to take a chance on others good faith in just giving. We are a family of 5.. with 3 young children. 10 months ago we had to make a huge change to our lives due to privatly renting a home of which we were evicted due to the landlord wanting to sell after 8 years and the next rented property being so badly maintained that our youngest ( who has bilateral spastic cerebral palsy-due to being 12 weeks prem) became athsmatic because of the damp in the house. We decided our childrens health is too important to continue to live in these conditions. We took a risk in selling and giving our belongings away..items like sofas, washing machine etc as we wouldnt need such items while living in our motorhome. This was now our chance to build a deposit and buy our own home for our childrens future. Our plan was to live in our motorhome for 6-9months, clear our debts and fund our move while still maintaining the "normal" life we led.
While our children have still continued in their school and our youngest has continued to have his hospital and physio appointments, we are now 10 months into living this way but we need some help to rebuild our funds as we lost thousands in bad financial advice, who promised us a mortgage twice (tried a third), solicitors fees, valuation fees, his own fees and multiple financial situations including a hit to our business due to the cyber hacking and a loss of a supplier.
We have wild camped, slept on driveways and in service stations to save money but we now need some help with funds. We really want our children to be able to settle and this would help push us towards our destination by the summer.
