Weʼre raising £1,000 to help set up the Bishop Wilton not-for-profit Community Shop
- Bishop Wilton
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.
On the 2nd of June, I will be cycling up Worsendale Road as many times as possible in order to raise money for the Bishop Wilton Community Shop.
It would be great if you could sponsor me per hill climb, so the more times I go up, the more money we can raise.
A village shop is a vital lifeline, a meeting place, communication hub and a lynchpin of village life. Much of the appeal of our village rests on its sense of community. The presence of a community shop would, we feel, support and enhance that village spirit.
The opportunity has arisen to buy the village shop building and a third party has agreed to purchase the shop and to lease it to the community on favourable terms.
After much groundwork we are now ready to move into the next, very exciting, stage… fundraising! We need to raise over £50,000, very quickly, so that, once the purchase is completed, we can start refurbishing and then stocking the shop. It would be great to be able to open the Bishop Wilton Community Shop in autumn.
