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 charity.

Story

Hadleigh Community Group was created in January 2017 by residents and businesses of Hadleigh Essex.
Our Objectives are:
- The main purpose of the organisation is to improve the general appearance of Hadleigh, Essex town centre and its surrounding area for the benefit of the local community whilst providing a welcoming location for commuters to experience

- To promote and assist existing local voluntary organisations and their activities

- Work with both corporate and local service organisations to promote Hadleigh, Essex

Our first objective is looking to add that little extra sparkle in future by installing a new display of Christmas street lamp lighting.

What’s the crowdfunding paying for?

We have estimated that the cost to purchase, install and remove the Christmas street lamp lights across Hadleigh town centre will be in the region of £3000. This also includes surveying and testing of the existing street lamps; all insurance and public fees.

    Fantastic - we've broke through the £1,000 barrier, which includes the funds paid direct into the group, so a huge thank you to everyone one of our contributors and also to the businesses of Hadleigh who have been displaying our posters. You will have noticed the 30 display boards around Hadleigh asking everyone to 'Help us get Christmas lights' kindly donated by AMOS estate agents. They have also donated the huge bill board sized poster in Osbourne's' car lot, between St. James church and Munch. Watch out for fund raising activities soon.

    First week and what a great start. £600 raised with further funds being donated at the various local stores and offices. A huge THANK YOU to everyone that has contributed to date. Great publicity in the form of estate agents boards in and around the community. Thank you AMOS for arranging these; and of course the local Echo newspaper for their coverage of the campaign. See Fri 28th July edition. P 20. Photo shows one of the planned street lamp Christmas decorations we are planning to purchase with the funds raised.
