    Weʼve raised £1,220 to fix our much loved clock!

    Funded on Saturday, 6th July 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.

    Story

    So over the past 18 months i have had many requests and a lot of people wanting to make donations to the clock being fixed. Hence i have decided to make a page dedicated to funding the clock being repaired. The costs are approx nearer the 2k mark however i will put £500 plus to it after £1500 has been reached and get this memory filled clock brought back to its former glory!

    It needs a new glass, face restoration, a service, painting, rust removal, hand replacement etc all that needs doing on a scaffolding tower with the correct time and equipment.

    We have tried to privately fund this with the building owner and Council to no avail over the past 18 months hence this is our last shot i think!

    *** AS A THANK YOU *** To anyone that donates i will give you a one off 10% off any order in store!

      Disappointing to see so few supporters willing to help save a part of the history of Barnsley. Good luck with meeting the target.

      It's not quite on the scale of Big Ben but this is a worthwhile local cause. Perhaps we could call it Big Benj?

      Thank you for bringing attention to this. Too many things have been removed and changed in recent years which is a disservice to history.
