£29raised of £935 target by 3 supporters

Weʼre raising £935 to Help fund a Podcast to support local independent business and creative ventures in the Northwest..

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.


I think I have a great idea for a project that will help local businesses across the North West, including performers and other inspirational people, reach new audiences in an innovative and modern way and I really need your help to make it happen!

I am putting together a podcast that will team up with local people and let them spread their stories, news and services as a new way to advertise and engage with people who may not have known about them before.

I would love to give people the chance to tell people about how passionate they are about what they do, whether that’s a local DJ, a florist or a dog walker! Most people will advertise on social media, and companies will use more traditional ways, but I think that by inviting people to join me for a fun and friendly podcast we will be able to spread their message in a 21st century way.

Near enough everyone has access to podcasts these days, and by getting the guests to put their episode of the podcast on their social media, I believe that word will quickly spread to make this a great way for people to promote themselves and it will get people interested in buying local again!

The majority of the funding needed is already in place, but to ensure a professional sounding finish I need your help to buy to buy the last 3 items! To get me going I need 2 x Sure SM7b Microphones (£329 from PMT Music shop) and 1 Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 MKII USB Audio Interface (£277 also from PMT Music Shop).

I believe this is a guaranteed success so I will donate the first £1000 of any money I make to charity to say a huge thank you for the help you give me, but in the unlikely off chance that it doesn’t, I will sell the equipment and donate the money too!

I really do need your help and even if you can only spare 10p it will be gratefully received!! Thanks so much for all your support to help me with this project!!
