£1,000raised of £1,000 target by 36 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,000 to provide a new gargoyle above the old post office on High Street in Alfreton

    Funded on Sunday, 12th February 2017

    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.


    For 100 years, Alfreton's gargoyle stood proudly atop the old Town Hall. The one-tonne gargoyle was 5ft tall and 4ft wide, and stood 40ft above the main door of the building.

    Sometime between 6pm on Monday July 13 2009 and 8am the following morning the terracotta gargoyle was removed from its vantage point by thieves and has never been replaced.

    The aim of this page is to raise enough money to to have a replica crafted and fitted back on its prominent spot, looking down at the people of Alfreton.

    Any monies left over will be handed to Alfreton's Heritage Centre which is situated in the cemetery on Rogers Lane, Alfreton.

      Only 4 days have passed since setting up this crowdfunding page and we have already raised £675. That's a massive 67% of what we are trying to raise. There have been some large donations including a huge one from Wheeldon. Thank you :) Brilliant job, folks!
