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%.

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
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.

Thanks for all your support. You can see from this article that we are starting to make a difference and the York and Leeds groups particularly are growing daily. http://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/analysis/yorkshire-s-brexit-resistance-the-endgame-is-to-call-an-end-to-this-nonsense-1-8340483 The funds raised are to be deposited in a bank account for the group and receipted accounts will be made available through the 48% Facebook page. None of this is possible without the support and confidence you have provided.
