Hi all,

Due to the current corona virus crisis, Me and my wife Danielle are trying to put something together that will both support the local community and local businesses.

I’m looking for donations, no matter how big or small, to provide to those in need during the lockdown.

The funds will then be used to buy ‘packages’ from local providers/business that I can then distribute throughout the community .


I was thinking this would be mainly aimed at the elderly initially , however, would be open to suggestions on how to share this between those in need, particularly with the kids now being off school and people self employed/being laid off/key workers working all hours.


I’ll be collecting ‘nominations’ via a Facebook group page that I will create in due course (depending on the success of this) and then depending how many there are, will draw them at random and provide them to the people myself.

I’m not even sure whether this will work, but if you never try then you’ll never know and even if this helps 1 person, than that’s better than doing nothing!


***I appreciate there may be concerns about donations as nobody can be trusted these days! However, I currently work for a bank and would not risk my career/livelihood that provides for my family . My wife also works for a large bank and Therefore I’ve opted to use crowdfunding to raise the money and will keep all receipts etc***

Any other questions please ask
