    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    In light of the recent catastrophic events in Cumbria, as a resident of the Ullswater area I am setting this page for the flood victims of Lake Ullswater.

    We care about Ullswater, like many others do. For the exceptional scenery camping hiking and much more. The Ullswater community now needs everybody's help in rebuilding the devastated community. I recently posted some Pictures on Facebook when the bridge at Pooley collapsed and i have been overwhelmed by the publicity it has gained. Over 9000 shares if everyone was to donate a small amount we would be well on the way to reconstructing our community.

    Supporters will see the difference as soon as possible with the flood levels still at an all time high. Emergency services and aid is at full stretch.

    The money will be spent on rebuilding the local community, which is currently detached from the rest of the county. The funds will be distributed to the local Parish Councils. For updates please follow @ullswaterhelp on twitter.
