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.


Thank you for visited my JustGiving page for The Welbeloved Club.

The Welbeloved Club will be a monthly Sunday lunch club, providing a tasty two course meal (and plenty of refreshments!) for people aged 65 and over, who are living alone and/or feeling very lonely and socially isolated.

So often, I hear the term "weekends are the worst."

We are facing a social crisis. Far far too many older people are living with loneliness every single day of their lives, and not enough is being done about it. It may not be much, but I am now fundraising to start a monthly Sunday lunch club in order to try and combat this terrible loneliness crisis.

Anything you can donate will be absolutely fantastic. If you were wondering how your money will be spent, here is a little insight:

£1 will buy a bag of carrots!

£5 will pay for one person's two course meal. £10 will pay for an item or utensil needed to cook or prepare the meals, as well as tea and coffee. £15 will cover transport costs for a few months, and any advertising costs. £20 will contribute towards the cost of ingredients for one month. £30 pays for a SPONSORED table of 6 people, each enjoying two courses. £50 will pay for the most important thing for a month - a venue.

This club is going to solely rely on donations. Please, if you can, be a part of reducing the isolation so many elderly people are facing.

      What a lovely thing to do for the many men and women who desperately appreciate the company and the food I’m sure. Keep up the fantastic work and I will try to donate more frequently X

    I have spent the last 3 years working with older people, and I see first hand the desperate need there is for more activities to combat loneliness. I receive referrals daily, asking me to help combat poor mental health, brought on by loneliness and social isolation.
