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.


I set up my own charity called You Shall go to The Ball in October 2017. I collect pre-loved Prom, Bridesmaid & Evening Gowns and work with local high schools and charities to give them to girls who otherwise would not be able to attend their Prom. Charities I am currently working with include Rock FMs Cash for Kids and Derian House.

We recently featured in the LEP and the response has been overwhelming! I currently store all of the dresses in my spare room but this is no longer fit for purpose and I need a secure storage space so I can continue to provide Prom dresses to girls who really need 1 night as a normal teenager.

First storage have offered a great secure storage space with insurance and 24 hour access, as well as a P.O. Box address so that dresses can be posted straight to the storage for £450 for the full year. I have set up this charity on my own and already pay a number of costs out of my own wage and simply cannot afford this on my own

We have been so lucky to receive an amazing amount of love and support already and this is something I truly believe can make a difference to the lives of many teenagers across Lancashire. If I cannot get secure storage this could mean the end and it would break my heart as I have put so much into it already. If you can help no matter how small it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you x
