    Weʼve raised £230 to help fund play equipment for Bearlands Park (Wotton Under Edge). We are looking to create a natural play space for the whole community.

    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.


    Who are we?
    Residents of Bearlands and its surrounding area, who are working hard to revitalise the area, and replace the tired, worn and partly removed play area. There is very little in the area for children, and they often end up playing football in the road as there is nothing else to do.

    How are we going to do this?
    We are working with Stroud District Council (who are responsible for the land) to regenerate the area. They have pledged to match the funding we raise up to a total of £25k. This is great news, but also means we are working hard to raise the rest.
    As well as investing money in the play area we hope to build a proper sense of community. We have already been able to run a number of successful sessions since the formation of our group in July.

      Here's a picture of the existing area... there's plenty of space for an inspiring and safe area for the children.

    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!
