    Weʼve raised £10,919 to pay for the funeral expenses of UK farmer Steve Pile

    Funded on Tuesday, 21st January 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    This fundraising page is set up by #clubhectare to support Joanne Pile (always known as Jo or @pile_joanne on Twitter). Jo's husband Steven Pile sadly took his life on 15th December at their farm in Wiltshire. With the support of her farming community, Jo is now running the farm on her own but has significant and obviously unexpected funeral costs. No one should have to deal with the sudden loss of a loved one, and sell farm equipment to pay for funeral expenses. Please help us to raise funds for Jo to pay for Steve's funeral. Jono and the #ch team have been in touch with Jo and the funeral director's quote is £5300, plus some costs for food/teas, so we have rounded up the total we'd like to raise.

    Background: The Piles are beef farmers, the main enterprise being a calf unit which has capacity for 480 calves which they contract rear. They graze store cattle and take them through to finishing or sell as older stores. Steve also did groundworks and agricultural fencing.

    Steve was originally from a dairy background but started out on his own with Jo after his dad died and built their farm from scratch. They were 2017 finalists for Beef Farmer of the year at the FW Awards.

    Please help us to raise funds for Jo. Any questions, please contact the #clubhectare team via direct message on social or

      We've got to 70% of target in 11 hours. Incredible. Any money donated over the target can go towards a gravestone which cost roughly £1300-1500. Thank you to everyone who has donated, shared, supported us and Jo.

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
