    Weʼve raised £5,992 to help fund the Peter Dunn Heligoland bird trap for Filey East Coast Ringing Group.

    Funded on Saturday, 26th September 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Peter had a full life being involved with Filey Bird Group and he also set up the East Coast Ringing Group. In his honour we would like to purchase a Heligoland Bird trap for the ringing group to keep his memory alive.

    On the run up to Easter weekend this year Peter discovered a pain in his back which had been nagging for some time but had now had worsened until he needed hospital treatment. Following a cat scan cancer was found with a tumour popping one of his vertibrae and also in two other places. Whilst in hospital he caught the Covid virus which he fought with all his strength but, unfortunately, overtook his body. On Friday 15th May at 03:45 Peter passed away at St Catherine's Hospice, Scarborough.

      We are failed relocators to Filey but have such happy memories of Pete and FBOG. Pete was kind and patient and at pains to share lovely Filey - but always rightly put the welfare of the birds first.

    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.

    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!
