Weʼre raising £500 to support the Burley Banksy in spreading yellow, white and blue joy across Leeds.
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.
Phil Hay's recent article on The Athletic told the touching story of the "Burley Banksy", Andy McVeigh, who paints Leeds yellow, white and blue, with the blessing of the city, including its authorities. Andy has been giving up his evenings for over a year to create heartfelt art for the community.
He has also been funding the provision of materials personally and I'm sure he'd say he's happy to do so, but that doesn't mean he should have to. We particularly think he deserves some support following the heartbreaking vandalisation of his Gary Speed memorial on what would have been Gary's 50th birthday. We'd like to show him that the city appreciates his efforts, so any donations that might help him to purchase new materials and protect his existing paintings would be greatly appreciated! Please feel free to leave words of support too!
