Weʼre raising £11,000 to help with my dad's retirement. He had rented a room to someone and had this amount of money stolen from him.

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.
My dad had rented out a room in his property to a tenant and had kept some money in the house. He suddenly become ill with bowl cancer and was going for treatment at the same time as my mum who had a hernia as a result there was only my brother to look after the house and his negligence meant he did not lock my parents room as a result the tenant had free access to the house and its my belief that he stole the money. My mum had to remain in hospital whilst my dad had to for four weeks remain in a retirement home to be supervised. My dad is 80 and is therefore not able to earn money as he has to wear a permanent colonoscopy bag and my mum is 58 and has also been heavily affected by her hernia.

I am his son and am trying to raise this money as what was stolen was to be put towards his retirement. He has had bowel cancer at the time and it was my brother's negligence that caused this.
