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.


Last year our incredible group raised £1200 to sponsor a bed for a year on on the ARK Project ( bus conversion for the homeless people of Reading!

This year we are doing it again!!!! But this time, Reading Gossip Girls community group want to raise £3000 to sponsor a bed pod for a whole year, a defibrillator and support the amazing work Ark project are doing.

The bus is parked up, in and around the town centre during the day as a 'safe' place people can come to and get help for bullying, domestic abuse, depression, dept, substance addiction and housing issues.

The ARK project team have gone above and beyond this past year and made massive differences in the lives of the homeless people in the area and across the Uk. They've succeeded in getting people in to much needed rehabilitation, supported people whether they stay on the bus or remain on the streets with food, warm clothes, blankets / sleeping bags during the snow etc..

Sometimes, people just need a chance, a helping hand, a hot meal or a place to sleep so hopefully 'The Ark Project' will give them the opportunity to get back on their feet!

With an extreme lack of funds and housing solutions in the area, the bus conversion will offer an fantastic, cost effective alternative!

It's very easy to lose your way in life. Everyone has a story, a history, a demon, a poor decision and sometimes we need help to get 'back up'!!

Let's pull together and make this happen!!!!

*Disclaimer* All funds raised will be paid directly to 'The Ark Project'.

Further information on the project is available on their website
