Weʼre raising £10,000 to Folk In Crisis Support Fund

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.


Stonehaven Folk Club donated £5000 to launch this fund teaming up with Hands Up for Trad to provide grants of £250 to help towards living expenses of Folk artists and support personnel severely affected by the Covid-19 crisis. The original target for the JustGiving campaign was to match this £5,000. This has now been comfortably exceeded and the total raised including Stonehaven Folk Club’s original donation had reached almost £13,000 by 26th June!

Thanks to the generous support of other Folk Clubs, especially four figure sums from Ardesier Folk Club, Folk at the Salmon Bothy and The Star Folk Club, and the generosity of other folk clubs and the public, it has been possible to help more than fifty affected individuals so far. With more fund-raising events to come, the campaign has been extended to at least the end of August so even more can be helped through this very difficult time. We’ve now raised the JustGiving target to £10,000. When we meet it, total funds raised will be £17,000, enough for us to give grants to 68 individuals! Help us blow this target away by continuing to give generously!

If you would like to help please donate to this fund. If you have any questions please Contact Hands Up for Trad.
