Weʼre raising £200 to To help the farming community of Saddleworth Moor recover from the wild fires
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.
As a crofter myself, I can't help thinking but there by the grace of god. This could be any of us in the UK at the moment with this prolonged period of dry weather. At a time of year when all sheep and lambs will be on their summer grazing (Saddleworth moor in this case), it will take years for the ground to recover from this. I would hate to hazard a guess at how the farmers and their families are coping with this. There will be loads of days taken off work to try and save their sheep. If everyone could give what they can afford, it might just be enough to take some stress off.
