    Weʼve raised £345 to Help YMCA in Paignton replace the minibus wheels which were stolen in the night of 1st May

    Paignton, UK
    Funded on Friday, 31st August 2018

    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.


    We were shocked to see another charity that does so much fantastic work for children and young people in Torbay suffer such a set-back with the theft of all the wheels of their minibus. The minibus is used daily for the YMCA's after-school club, holiday club, nursery, out of school provision for all those children for whom transport is a real necessity.

    Yes, the YMCA could claim on their insurance but the excess and the rise of premiums would be prohibitive.

    We can help! Please could you spare a few pounds to buy and install new wheels for their minibus? Let's show our fantastic community spirit and get the minibus back on the road with happy children!

    If we manage to raise more than is needed for the minibus, the difference will be used to increase the security at the premises: lighting, a gate to the car park.

    Thank you, everyone!

      Shocking to see this happen, not only to a local vehicle, but a charity run organisation too! Not only am I donating to a great charity, but we/MOTEC are offering our services free of charge.
