Weʼve raised £565 to Send money to WIRES wildlife rescue NSW and Australian Red Cross Bushfire appeal
- Funded on Sunday, 9th February 2020
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.
As an expat Aussie living in Norwich, UK I feel a long way from the pain and struggles of my countrymen. This charity page is my attempt to create a community response from this side of the world to help the communities that have been ravaged in Australia culminating in a Charity lunch on Sunday 26th January at Farmyard on St Benedict's St, Norwich. They have generously allowed us to take over the restaurant for the day to host a casual meal which is being supported by local businesses in aid of raising as much money for Charities helping people and wildlife affected by this catastrophic bush fire season.
So far we have had generous contributions from-Kofra , Swannington Farm to Fork , Easter's of Norwich , St Jude Cheese , Fen Farm Dairy
I also have a facebook event page here
*To be fully transparent, I have decided to do a personal fundraising campaign instead of directly to a charity so that I can split the funds raised in the campaign evenly between my two charities. This platform doesn't seem to have that ability at this point*

Thank you Blake for doing this, some of my family live in Australia and luckily have not been directly affected by the fires.But I want to give for all those that have been and the animals.
