Weʼre raising £1,200 to pay for a training course to change career and finally be able to support my family.

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.
Short story - I need to retrain to provide for my family.
In exchange i will dedicate 1 days pay (once trained) for 6 weeks back into justgiving.
Long story- Im 33 and have been with my wife since we were 18. We have 2 children and all our lives we have struggled like most families to keep our heads above water.
I dont want this to be a sob story but rather elaborate on how we got here.
It started when we were both 18, my wifes parents took an instant dislike to me even though i was due to start in the police force. They started locking my wife out of her family home and after 6 months of this on and off they sold their house and down sized forcing us to make a decison. Split or move out together.
Safe to say 16 years on and I love her more than ever and i wont let anything stand between us. We have had our trials and still have the scars from some of the battles over the years but one thing remains constant. “We will not be ground down”
Thank you for taking the time to read a glimpse into our lives.
