Weʼre raising £60,000 to buy a local coffee shop/meeting place in our local community

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.
I would like to purchase a local coffee shop with a view to it becoming a very community based place. There are many public houses but no comfortable friendly gathering places where people can just "BE".
I would like to make it a safe haven where people can come and talk and work through some issues with people that can listen with actual knowledge and perhaps solutions. I would like to invite a trained professional in once a month to start with ie, a solicitor or health specialist or someone trained in talking people out of suicides, alcohol addition or someone to help with beds for the homeless etc.
I genuinely believe that there is a gap in the market for this kind of informal help which could eventually be linked with many government services.
