Weʼve raised £705 to get Uplawmoor a christmas tree for 2018 & donate to the Trussell Trust Foodbank
- Uplawmoor, Glasgow, UK
- Funded on Thursday, 13th December 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Help the Uplawmoor Community Council raise funds to purchase a Christmas Tree, with all unspent funds being donated to a local foodbank.
Unfortunately, we’ve just been told that this year that East Renfrewshire Council are looking to charge the village £460 for the tree. As a small Community Council we can’t afford that, particularly moving into the year where we expect the fight with Glasgow Airport to start again.
Therefore, we’re going to make the best of a bad situation. We’ve approached a local garden centre to try and arrange the tree, and we’re looking for your help in funding it. To try and get some festive spirit back into the whole event, we’re also asking if you could dig a little deeper, because everything we raise above the cost of the tree will be going to the Trussell Trust food bank in Barrhead.
Please give what you can spare, and let’s ensure we have a great night for the lights’ switch on (12th December!) as well as helping some others who will be really struggling this winter.
All those at your Community Council

Well, we are delighted that we have managed to smash our initial target of £300, so we're going bigger! Our new target of £800 will help ensure that we are able to give an amazing sum of money to the Trussell Trust food bank on behalf of the village - Have you helped us reach our goal?
