Weʼre raising £1,000 to heat our loved but cold Hall!
- Fair Isle, Shetland, UK
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.
Welcome to the Fair Isle Community Hall JustGiving page. We are the main community centre on the UK's remotest inhabited island. The Hall is the beating heart of our small but proud community of 60 inhabitants, hosting dances, traditional crafts sales, teas, sports and music events. Our heating system is broken and without it, the space becomes unusable. We are working hard to raise funds to fix the heating and keep this absolutely vital place warm enough to use. Our total target is £20,000 so anything you donate will be gratefully received and will make a huge difference to our wonderful Isle. We are also holding a fabulous auction on our Facebook page - Fair Isle Community Hall, please like and share if you can! Thank you!

Thank you for all your donations so far, we have raised over £2000 via this page, PayPal and our auction which is amazing but we still have a way to go! The project will cost £30,000, we have £10,000 of funding secured but want to do more ourselves. If you would like to bid for some lovely Fair Isle things, please like our Facebook page Fair Isle Community Hall and you will see the auction there. The item currently for sale is the table mat below, made by young islander Lowri Best. Thanks again, we will have a warm hall again soon!

Good luck from an islander off the coast of Massachusetts, USA (and an avid knitter) -- "islanders stand together!"
