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.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Hands Off Wivenhoe is a group of local residents who want to make sure that Wivenhoe remains a distinct town and does not become a suburb of Colchester. The group was set up in response to Colchester, Tendring, Braintree and Essex County Councils' plans to build three large-scale developments in North Essex. This could include 9,000 new homes on Wivenhoe's doorstep, some built on grade 1 arable land.

Hands Off Wivenhoe's primary aim is to ensure that there is no building - residential or otherwise - south of the A133. The group also wants local infrastructure to be a priority in any new development.

All funds raised will go towards publicising the campaign and the fight to preserve Wivenhoe's unique and wonderful character. The campaign is ongoing but any funds left unused will be given to the Wivenhoe Mayor's fund.

    Thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign so far. We are already making plans about how to use these funds constructively. In particular, we're looking at how we can reach residents who do not have access to the internet. Thank you again.

    Jeremy Lent's book 'The Patterning Instinct' warns we are crashing through Earth's ecological limits. We need to urgently step back from this path rather than blindly following it to the precipice.

    You people are making Timikins so angry! He keeps ranting that you are ruining his plan. Only the other day, I innocently enquired "How are things?" and he almost had a fit! Keep up the good work!!
