Weʼre raising £5,152 to Help fund the equipment needed for an observatory, for Bridgend Astronomical Society

Bridgend, Wales, United Kingdom

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.


We are a small, friendly astronomical society, we currently have 36 members, we want to attract more members to our society, and be able to provide our current members with access to excellent viewing equipment, in a safe environment. Other larger astronomical societies have access to an observatory, they either have their own, or they use the observatory at the local university. We currently don't have our own, neither do we have a university with an observatory, close enough to us, for our members to be able to have regular or any access to. The equipment that we are looking to buy for our observatory, is as follows.....We would be extremely grateful for any donations that you make to help us achieve our goals, for the future of our society. Many thanks Bridgend Astronomical Society.
