Weʼre raising £2,000 to buy new tools and equipment for the CommonSense volunteer working parties.
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.

CommonSense is a group of local volunteers whose aim is to assist with the upkeep of Southampton Little Common, for the benefit of all those who use it. Formed in 2008, its current vision is to increase public access to the whole of the Little Common.
CommonSense produced an Action Plan endorsed by the City Council, aiming to restore the condition of the Little Common to that shown in a plan originally drawn up by the Council in 1992.
Southampton Little Common is part of Southampton Common, the historic communal grazing area used by the citizens of Southampton from at least as far back as the 10th century up until WWII. The Little Common is separated from the larger, western, part by the A33 trunk road – “The Avenue”- which is the historic route in and out of the city.
CommonSense volunteers are in need of new equipment for the working parties. Specifically an industrial, walk behind mower, which we plan to purchase second hand.
