    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 nonprofit.

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

    Story

    Crown Crest have submitted a planning application seeking permission to increase their Warehouse opening times (evenings and weekends) in order to facilitate their ongoing expansion of the Poundstretcher brand. This ultimately means that there will be a significant increase in the amount of HGV traffic in and out of the Crown Crest site (up to 1000+ lorries per day), the majority of which will access the site via Kirby Muxloe village. We therefore need to act quickly, and urgently raise money in order to finance the hire of Professional Planning Consultants, Solicitors, Planning Fees and Placards / Signage, all required to fight an effective challenge to this application.

      Finally, I would like to say thankyou for all of your donations received. The final total raised was £3.7k. The battle continues...... With regards to Crown Crest, despite HBBC unanimously rejecting the planning application, Crown Crest are appealing against this decision, a process which could take up to 18 months! They have also opened a second access gate into the site which they are claiming is NOT subject to any planning conditions, and thus enabling them to access the site 24/7, 365 days.

      Just a short note to advise everyone who has donated to this campaign, that today, I have instructed "Just Giving" to close the fund raising page in order so that as Treasurer of the Action Group, I can draw down and access the funds raised. I need to reimburse people who have already paid for items out of their own pocket, plus we have several up and coming costs (speed guns / air pollution monitoring / legal fees etc) that need to be paid for. As Treasurer I will keep track of the funds and provide a monthly statement to the group Committee

      We are currently well on the way to raising the estimated £5k cost of funding this campaign, but we are still short of target and interest in the Crowd Funding page has slowed in recent weeks. I would therefore be grateful if you could share the Crowd Funding page with any friends or neighbours that may not be aware of our campaign, in the hope that they join us. Any donation is welcome, no matter how big or small. Many thanks.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
