Weʼre raising £10,000 to Pay for 'NHS Frontline Staff - Win your Wedding'
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.
We have all seen what the NHS and Front line staff (and indeed all the staff) has been going through to keep us safe and well. Working to keep the services going through thick and thin whilst we are going through this world wide Pandemic. They have done us all proud, and I keep saying to anyone who will listen that we must do something to pay them back.
My name is Shola and I have been a wedding planner for over 10 years, and I know how weddings can become quite expensive when you add all the individual components together.
In fact, it could make many couples not to even want to get married, as they simply can’t afford it- not on the wages of a general staff nurse or a newly qualified nurse or social worker. This competition is open to couples who have at least one of the couple working in the front line.
In London, the professionals have suffered and have had no real time to even think about themselves or their relationships whilst carrying out their life-saving roles diligently and with no real thought for themselves. We have lost over 100 dedicated NHS Professional who had a lot live for, yet they gave their lives to save as many people as they could in doing so. They have put all of that on the back burner to fight for us, and the NHS.
I have lost sleep thinking what can I do to "give something back", and this has been playing on my mind and as a wedding planner, I have decided that the best thing to give to a deserving couple to help them make some sense of life and some happiness after all the sadness and trials they must have gone through over the past 4 - 5months, is to get a group of 1st class wedding and event professionals together and offer a free wedding day for a really deserving couple.
Whilst I do believe that everyone who has been working on the frontline deserves, of a brilliant day, we would like to gift a superb wedding day to one couple.
Thank you for allowing to use this creative platform to allow us to give something back and we would like your help and support to gift this to a lucky deserving couple. It would take all the burden from them and make 2021 a year for them to start their married life together ecstatic knowing they do not have to foot the bill for their wedding. In fact, we would go out to make it a special day to remember.
We would like to offer the full Wedding Planning Service for on the day planning, Designer Bride's Wedding Dress, Designer Groom's Suit, Designer Wedding Cake, Specialist Event Decorations, MC, DJ, Dance floor, Wedding Florals, Designer Bridesmaids Dresses, Reception Drinks, - and all the other things which go to make a wedding really wonderful. Other vendors sought to make this even more awesome.
We especially need to pay for a lovely venue in London, a London hotel for 1 or 2 nights stay for the couple, and or a honeymoon and any catering for the wedding. We will supply everything else.

Thank you to all those of my friends and associates on this platform who have given and donated to this worthy cause already. We still don't have nearly enough to even buy anything on our wish list. I really do appreciate you and your personal struggles, and I do know that If you've ever asked me to donate to a cause dear to you, I have always given something, just to show I care and support you. Can I ask you to do the same for me, please? Any small amount will be gratefully received and help to boost this gift to an NHS worker. Thanks so much
