    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.


    The children of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell love to play outdoors and we would like to enhance the current play facilities.
    Phase 1 will add a new toddler play area in Kingsmeadow and a new zip line for the older children at a cost of £60,500. In addition to this, we will resurface the existing play area.
    Phase 2 will add new play equipment to the Recreation Ground play area on Mackey Lane at a cost of approximately £40,000. This will also include the addition of adult gym equipment.
    The committee has applied for two grants to fund the construction. The grant guidelines require that we "match fund" of a small percentage of the total amount in order to release the grant. This JustGiving page has been set up in order to raise the necessary funds to meet the match funding requirements. To confirm, our £15,000 target will cover funding for both Phase 1 and Phase 2.
    We estimate that once our full fundraising target is achieved, Phase 1 construction could begin in October 2017.
    Our wonderful village is a community of generous and giving people so please donate to our cause!

    Villagers can also donate via the Community Association of Brightwell cum Sotwell. A box is located in the village shop.

      What's Happening.... The current playgrounds will be refurbished starting in November 2017. Work should begin at Kings Meadow in the New Year with a new toddler area and adventure zone with zip line. We hope it will be ready for the Spring of 2018. Thanks for all the kind donations and should you still want to give you can via the Community Association, don't forget to fill in gift aid form. These are available in the Village shop. Thanks again for all the support!
