I am trying to raise money so that my wife, brother and I can live our dream of opening our own Cafe. We have worked so hard for others.

by Steven Songhurst in Puddletown, England, United Kingdom

A little bit about ourselves. My brother trained as a Chef after leaving school. He is so hard working and has always worked also hard.  He is now working 2 jobs 60 hours a week to try and raise the funds. 

My wife trained as waitress after finishing school. This is what she has been doing since, although she now does the training. 

I was a Special Constable for over 4 years and also a retained firefighter. Other than that i too have worked in Customer Service, from a Head Concierge to waiting tables and a night manager of a Hotel. However, with all the experience between us, and the hours we have put in for other people, we still can’t follow our own dream. Nobody out there is willing to help us. 

The 3 of us are so close and worked together many times over the years. We make an amazing team and our energies and expertise gel together to make a perfect partnership. We have the same ideas but sadly the same luck when it comes to raising money for our own project. This may seem selfish to some, as we are raising money for ourselves and for the future of our children, but rest assured we have given so much to so many over the years and are just looking for our little light at the end of the tunnel. This was a last result after exhausting every option. We have been to the bank several times over the years to be knocked back and even told we don’t have enough experience? 

Please, Please, please support us, help us reach our dream and we can promise to never let you down.
