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.


15/8/18 Thank you all for your donations. We have achieved £600 online - wow! I have also received cash donations. If you would still like to give, all money donated will go towards the bench/plaques or the upkeep of the bench. I will still be raising money as these benches aren't cheap. Thank you once again. More updates as and when 😀
******`Although we have achieved the target of £500 (in less than 48 hours-I'm gobsmacked!) Thank you all so much. I am hoping to raise a little more so that we can get an even better bench, one that will last for years to come. Any donations made surplus to the cost of the bench will go towards a planter/tree etc in their name. Once again Thank you*******
:Eardisland duck racing had been going for more than 20 years raising money for the local village hall. Many of the original organisers are no longer with us: Gill and Eric Richards, Derek Wareham, Derek Bray, Jenny Gittoes, Joleon Gill, Ian Watson and Pat Roche. We would like to site a bench by the mill stream with brass plaques dedicated to each of the original team. Unfortunately, the village hall committee cannot help fund this due to ridiculous red tape etc. We would love this bench to be a permanent reminder of the hard work and dedication shown by the above mentioned people. These people lived most of their lives in the village. Please give a little or a lot as every little helps.
