    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.

    Story

    We have so far risen £1,600 in total in 2 years for our Littleborough Canalside Café Community Project.
    We have enough money in the kitty to cover the cost of now applying for the Planning Application with our Local Council - accompanied with plans for a temporary wooden structure that will possibly be allowed on the derelict site here within the local community.
    The £18,000 will if reached - enable our Community to use the site as a café as well as looking lovely and selling locally sourced produce made by local people.
    The Community Café will also have an information point with information about Littleborough itself.

      The canal's are beautiful over the pennines. A great way to spend an afternoon's walking and it would be even better if there was somewhere for a cuppa. Any chance?

      My donation is to help only anonymous because myself (and wife) know how hard it was to start our business up in Littleborough with no help. Well-done Bob and Andrea.

    I have lived in Littleborough for the last 7 years. I have invested a lot of work time raising funds for 3 nationaly recognised concervation Charities here in the UK and 2 national medical charities as well. The potential for this Project to help our Town is enormous. THANKS
