£1,170raised of £500 target by 39 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,170 to raise some coffers to help us to have a honeymoon somewhere hot and Vit-D-heavy during the January blues.

    Whitley Bay, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 5th October 2017

    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.



    This feels like a bit of an alien and cheeky thing to do, and we really don't want to be 'those guys' (i.e. white, privileged, asking for handouts to go off- grid) but three different goodly people who aren't even joining us for our wedding have asked us today how they might offer us wedding gifts (how lovely is that?), and a friend suggested that it's probably a wise and practical thing to create a space that allows for this amazing sense of generosity to happen.

    We do this with a strong caveat of immense gratitude and absolutely no 'should' attached.

    In terms of material possessions we really don't need any more 'stuff'. We live modestly and happily in our Whitley Bay home. We volunteer to save the local seal population, recycle often and always pick up dog poop whenever we see it (maybe). We're not entitled a**holes, but we also don't have much by the way of disposable income.

    SO, what we'd really love is to go somewhere hot in January 2018 to celebrate our wedding in one of those big splashy 'once in a lifetime' trips. We're getting married on 9th September 2017 but are waiting until January '18 for The Big Trip because this is often the month when the weather goes to kaka in the UK and the blues tend to sink in (Beccy has Bipolar/disregulation disorder)

    If you know/vaguely like us and wish for us to experience some Vit D and a wee slice of paradise (we have our eye on a place called Holbox Island off Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula...but we shall see!) then you could, if you felt inclined, throw a little cash our way and help us to get there.

    Much love and thanks to all, and did we mention just how excited we are to get wed?!

    Spencer and Beccy x

      Dear You Lot. This week we fly to Mallorca for our honeymoon. We decided that given how active my illness has been over the past few months, a shorter flight seemed wise. So we're gearing up to enjoy ten whole days of spring-like beauty on this historically rich island. We've been entirely overwhelmed and uplifted by the generosity that has been shown to us over the last six months. Thank you so very much. We plan to shower each of you with future kindness, love & japes. Consider this our I O U. Much love, Speccy x
