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.

Barrow Island Rugby is in need of your help! We are hoping to raise money for our Club and get our pitch to the standard that is required.
Four years ago, we gave all of our funds to contractors for them to re-design our pitch. This turned into a disaster and the contractors we entrusted this job to, let us down and the contractors still have all of our funds that we spent years raising.
We are now in the National Conference, however our pitch is not at the standard required, so we are in danger of getting kicked out. We are hoping to raise £36,000 for top soil and machinery to get our pitch game ready.
We have 7 kids teams, a women team and 2 open age teams. Our high standard of training & effort has made many players turn professional and more so help develop them into respectable adults.
All of our committee have given their life to the club, with some of them nearly losing their homes plus all the added stress including having to take the contractors to court over something that should have been simple and straightforward.
I would like to thank you for reading, and any donation big or small will be much appreciated. The new pitch will be around for many more years to come to help develop more people in this sport.

Hi everyone, i just want to say thanks to every so far that has donated to this massive project.Its going very well and we are now in a position to get started on the grading & drainage ready for the top soil to go down in the new year. We have enough now for all the preparation work and labour so we are just now hoping to get a final push for the remaining money needed for the top soil. £15,000 is the new target to get the pitch finished before John pops his cloggs.
