Weʼve raised £1,392 to a family who have lost everything.
- Bristol, United Kingdom
- Funded on Thursday, 21st September 2017
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.
Can you help a family who have lost everything, a lifetime's worth of belongings and memories. Everything they own, even the basic things most of us take for granted everyday, a bed to sleep in, food to eat, a roof over our heads and clothing.
As you've probably seen on the news, my parents boat, the place they call home was destroyed by a gas explosion, thankfully they both escaped with their lives, but this has left them with nothing except the clothes on their backs. They just made it to the dockside in time to watch it sink. My father is in hospital quite badly burnt and with staples in his head, leaving him unable to work for some time.
I have set up this page hoping that we can all relate to this in some way, as it could have happened to anyone of us. We all gas fires, gas cookers etc.
Any donation you can give would be greatly appreciated at this moment in time, so we can help them get back on their feet just by starting with the everyday necessities we all take for granted, clothing, food, toiletries etc. If anyone can help with clothing, cutlery, bedding, appliances anything we use everyday would be a massive help.
Once we have sorted this, we can start to arrange the recovery and salvage of their home.
