    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.


    Every day the community are now having to play chicken amongst speeding cars coming through Hockley Lane. It is petrifying to see people risking their LIVES on the junction that people still speed from the previous higher MPH zone.

    Due to council and government cuts to the school’s budgets the local schools have had to make a hard decision to cease the essential crossing on Hockley lane. It makes me extremely frustrated that these are their future generation of voters and tax payers and they are having their safety endangered due to money.

    Some local community members are looking to arrange a voluntary crossing service, to make sure our community have a safer crossing to access local amenities. However, in order to do this, they will need Public Liability (to cover them should they be found at fault for an accident) , high visibility jackets and crossing signs etc.

    Obviously, it’s unfair to expect these community heroes to fund the above themselves so hence the reason this page has been set up.

    Please feel free to give any amount and use your business name to promote your support to the local area and community members.

    Whether you are a user of the crossing or not we need to make sure the area is safe for all to use.

    **We are still in contact with the council to see their ongoing plans, but this is needed for the foreseen future**

    ***Any surplus funding will be used to support the local community/ schools***

        I truly hope this much needed crossing gets support from local people or wherever. The safety of children being paramount and also others using that junction, pedestrian or driver!

        I do hope the money is raised for this worthy cause. My sons both went to school here and a lollipop /crossing person was really important
