£264raised of £500 target by 10 supporters

    Weʼve raised £264 to support healthy walking in Herstmonceux, by building accessible ladder stiles and publishing local route pamphlets.

    Funded on Tuesday, 11th June 2019

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Making Our Local Footpaths More Accessible

    It is well recognised by the medical profession that walking activities, particularly in the countryside, has both physical and mental benefits. Vitality Villages in Herstmonceux is doing something to help.

    The traditional stiles that are to be found along our footpaths often prove an insurmountable barrier for the very people who would benefit most from a country walk. Vitality Villages has started a project to replace broken stiles with ones of a ladder design that has easy steps and firm handholds, built to a tried and trusted design developed by the Monday Group in Mid-Sussex. They cost between £150 and £200 each. The stiles will be built by the local Men's Shed and installed by volunteers. We need money for the purchase of the raw materials.

    To further encourage the community of Herstmonceux, Vitality Villages has published eight walk pamphlets for the local area that are available free of charge in a number of outlets. These have proved to be very popular and we need funding to continue publishing them.

    Steve is asking for sponsorship as he walks the parish boundary of Herstmonceux. It is approximately 19 miles and will be undertaken over two legs on the 11th and 18th May. Money raised will be split between the two projects.

      Hi Everyone, Well I finished the second leg of the walk on Saturday. Altogether seventeen people accompanied me on all or part of the walks and so far we have raised a total in excess of £500, with most of the money coming in as cash. We have enough for a reprint of the walk pamphlets and a ladder stile. Thank you again for your support. Steve

    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!
