    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.

    Story

    Croydon Police want to help an elderly couple, Mr and Mrs Gibbs, who were victims of burglary where their only form of transport, a 29 year old Austin Metro in Mint condition was stolen.

    Both victims suffer from serious medical conditions and relied on the car to get to and from hospital appointments. The vehicle was written off and the insurance money given the age of the vehicle was not sufficient to purchase a replacement, which has meant the couple have had to use these funds to find alternative transport to get to hospital.

    DC Cooper from Croydon CID is running a collection amongst Croydon Police to see what can be done to help this couple as we are running up to Christmas especially as the weather has plummeted to freezing temperatures.

    I have created this crowd funding page to help raise further funds in order to show the victims of this despicable crime that the community care enough to rally together and try and help increase funds to buy the couple a replacement car.

      Thanks to everyone who's donated so far. It's been an amazing effort from Croydon CID in the past couple of weeks to increase funds and the Croydon community is now showing how much they care and how thoughtful they are towards two people who really need there help. We are currently talking to a independent car dealership who are also keen to help. Let's keep going and hopefully we can get Mr and Mrs Gibbs a car so badly need.
