    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.


    Following the devastating floods of December 2015 Down-a-gate Community Centre in the village of Warwick Bridge is in need of a full rebuild. If the area floods again we want to ensure that our centre avoids total destruction - by raising the floor level of the main function room to a safe height above the water.

    Many community groups use the centre, including toddler groups, the local history group, gardening club, the local school and pensioner groups. The centre has also been used by local residents to hold private parties. The pitches and centre are also regularly used by local football teams.

    Down-a-gate was built by locals many years ago, we would like to see those people using the centre once again. Together we can build a centre for the local community to be proud of. Even if every person gave just £1 this would raise a huge amount of money! Every penny counts. Thank you for your support.

      Thank you for all the support so far. We have sold many raffle tickets and the fundraising event tickets have almost sold out! We are working hard applying for other sources of funding and hope to have some good news soon. ALL the money raised will be used to rebuild Downagate. It is for the Community Centre, for the local community. Thank you for your continued support.

    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!
