    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.


    Hi I'm Paul,

    I'm 41, self-employed and a single parent to two great children.

    This is the most difficult letter I have ever written and I apologise for asking but I feel I have no choice.

    Last week whilst at work I had an accident which severed two tendons and a nerve in my wrist, I received an emergency operation to repair my injuries successfully thanks to our great NHS.

    Fortunately I should make a full recovery in 4 to 12 months. Unfortunately I couldn't afford the premiums of personal insurance and being self-employed I don't receive any kind of sickness pay.

    My timing for this accident could not have been worse with Christmas looming as well as other financial commitments.

    Yours faithfully

    Paul Shaw

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
