    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.


    The Culture Crusaders was an innovative project aimed at getting young people passionate about art and heritage, helping form strong links with their identity and developing confidence, fine motor skills and team working!

    Our Culture crusaders met every Thursday for the past 12 weeks, exploring their own local heritage and trialling out new art techniques. They explore different periods of history relating to the area, such as Bronze age, Roman, Medieval and Mining Heritage. We will look at myths and legends, build heritage and stories from the people. The group designed and curated their own exhibition, this helped the children engage with their heritage, empower them and result in a tangible outcome. The 'Our Roots, Our Way' exhibition consists of art work by the children, each creating their own ‘cabinet of curiosity, including aspects of their heritage which really spoke to them. In this way they were interpreting their heritage for themselves.

    The Culture Crusaders project was very popular, we had 18 children every week! and the difference it has made to their lives is tremendous!

    ''Excellent, great to see the children engaged, excited and interested on our history. Some beautiful pieces. Well done to all involved!'

    'An absolutely fantastic club. It allowed my son to gain knowledge, skills and confidence, and we couldn't ask for more. Thank You!'

    'My son has grown so much in confidence since attending the group. This was the first group where he was left to participate without me being in the room/close by and the staff made this possible making the children feel safe and secure. He has very enthusiastic about all the activities and the exhibition of crafts was amazing. Well done to all!'

    'We are going to miss Crusaders! Coming each week has done wonders for Lizzy's confidence, she has learned so much and has taken her crafts into school to show off and even stood up in assembly to talk to the whole school about them! That is amazing for Lizzy, truly amazing. Please, please can we have more!'

    'One of the best groups in the area run by the best people it has been amazing too see how fantastic the children have done and how enthusiastic they are about this group. It's a credit to all the hard work put in by Donna and her team. The children love it and have learned lots and made some beautiful things, we will miss this group!'

    Please support us in continuing to provide Culture Crusaders workshops for the community :) All donations will be used to supply art materials and knowledge to the children allowing them to use materials no readily available to them.
