    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.

    Story

    Sierra Leone is a beautiful country and Freetown is a bright, vibrant capital city filled with the kindest people you could wish to meet. They are also some of the strongest. The recent tragic flooding and mud slide is the latest tragedy to hit them. It has devastated some of the poorest communities and has already killed hundreds with thousands being declared homeless.

    As Freetown is Hull's twinned city, the aim of this fundraising is to help support those who have lost everything. We are working with our sister organisation, the Hull Society, to target those in need. Funds will be sent directly to our colleagues in Freetown who will purchase what is required to help.

    The Freetown Society and this fundraising effort is supported by Hull City Council, Canon Neal Barnes of Hull Minster, The Sierra Leone Association based in Hull as well as Hull schools with partnerships in Freetown.
