    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

    *Update* - thanks to overwhelming generosity we smashed the target for recovering the table. On the advice of the reair company we are now being ambitious - can we get to £500 and replace it all together?

    Cherry Tree Hostel is located on the very outskirts of Sheffield, so residents often feel stuck out here and the pool table provides vital entertainment and keeps the young people off the streets and out of trouble, but it has seen better days. It will cost £220 for new baize, cushions and re-levelling. Any extra will go towards new cues (there is only one and its held together with sellotape) and balls

      A big update: Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of a really kind bunch of people, we have smashed the target for recovering the table, and based on advice from table refurbishers we are hoping now - if we are lucky - to find a second hand replacement table instead!! I never imagined this would be remotely possible and can’t thank everyone enough. So - one last push - please do share as far and wide as you can to see if we can up the funds. £500 would replace our unplayable wreck of a table with a much better one that will last years!

      Unbelievable!! I’m so amazed, grateful and proud of the huge generosity that has made this possible. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and shared. I’ll leave the page open a few more days but we now have enough for the repair and two new cues!! Any extra will go on cue tips, chalk, maybe even some balls. Thank you wonderful generous peeps. This fundraiser didn’t save lives or anything, but it has give a big load of KINDNESS to some people who really need it. Much love.
