    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.


    Help us to commemorate 100 years since the loss of old Hallsands Village to the sea on 26th January 2017 and raise funds for the Fisherman's Mission.

    On the 26th January 1917 the village of Hallsands on the South Devon coast was finally abandoned following a storm which destroyed the village that had been exposed to coastal erosion following dredging and removal of the shingle within Start Bay. Fortunately there were no casualties and everyone made it to safety up the cliffs.

    On 26th January 2017 local people and descendants of the villagers would like to commemorate this event . To do this we are planning lots of activities for people to attend including an exhibition retelling the story of old Hallsands, a lamp lit walk over the cliff following the path taken by the villagers during the storm , a church service, unveiling of a commemorative plaque and a crab supper. We are hoping that there will be a bus to take people to and from the various events. To acheive all this we are asking people to donate to cover some of the costs such as materials to put up the exhibition, buy the plaque etc. None of the money will go to paying the people involved for their time and many people have already offered to donate things such as the crab for the crab supper.

    All funds raised that are surplus to covering basic costs will be donated to the Fisherman's Mission
