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.

I started a petition 2 years ago to try and bring back an East Midlands Theme Park. The American Adventure Theme Park closed in 2007 due to financial struggles and falling visitor numbers. I went to the park when I was a kid and to this very day. I remember it so well. My petition has been signed by nearly 11,000 people. A housing estate and retirement village and other facilities was approved in July 2015 by Derbyshire County Council and building will commence in Spring 2018. Bringing the park back would boost the local economy of Derbyshire and the East Midlands. Family's and teenagers and young children have nowhere to go in Derbyshire since The American Adventure closed and I think now is the right time to bring it back. This is the last chance to bring back American Adventure and with your help in donating we can bring it back even better than it was 31 years ago.
