£365raised of £360 target by 24 supporters

    Weʼve raised £365 to To pay for baby Henry seagull to be transported 230 miles to Lindsey Maria where he will then have his life saving operation.

    Funded on Friday, 26th October 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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Baby henry seagull has a compound fracture to his right wing and needs a urgent operation to save him. He is very lively at the moment and is eating well and I have started him on antibiotics to try and keep any possible infection at bay but from my past experience when they have a injuriry like this they can suddenly take a turn for the worst so it is vital we get him treated asap if he is to stand a chance.

    The lovely Lindsey Maria has offered to give him a forever home and have her vet treat him but she is in Derby which is 230 miles from me so I am going to drive to Bristol to meet Lizzy Palmer who is then going to drive him the rest of the way to Lindsey who is in derby, Between us we are going to be covering around 470 miles in total so is going to cost quite a bit in fuel and then on top of that there is the vet bill for the operation and all the aftercare medication etc which is going to need to be covered.

    It is not often I ask anyone for donations or funding as I hate doing it but if we are going to be able to pull this off between us and save him we are going to need to raise around £350 to cover everything but time is of the essence so we need to do it swiftly if he is to stand a chance.

    If anyone can spare anything to help us it would be greatly appreciated thank you all so much x
