£225raised of £500 target by 11 supporters

    Weʼve raised £225 to Fund event resources and insurance for Yorkshire pro European Groups - York for Europe, Leeds for Europe, and Hull and Beverley 48%.

    York, United Kingdom
    Funded on Monday, 26th December 2016

    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.


    Yorkshire local pro-EU groups are planning a number of events to support our continued membership of the EU or as close a relationship as we can manage.

    We are unhappy that our future is being determined by a large but vocal and aggressive minority (just 37% of the electorate voted to leave the EU). We also are unhappy that the referendum was narrowly lost because of a concerted campaign to misinform the public and sow division. We believe that we and our children will pay a heavy price for this: loss of rights, lower environmental protection; higher prices and loss of opportunities.

    We want to fight this through engaging with our communities throughout Yorkshire through various outreach events. Funding is essential to achieve these aims.
