    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    The Picture you see is how The UN SIGHTLY Site on Canal Street looks like now - and has for over 6 years?

    We will simply transform it with a Community run Canalside Café with Information Point put in place for people to see.

    Littleborough will benefit with the attraction of the café on the Littleborough Canal Wharf as that name has been lost in time.

    The latest news is The Pennine Township will help in every way they can once we have raised certain monies and paid the Rent for the Site and put in for Planning that all costs £1375 just for that.

    Our Street Collections are on target to raise that money.

      The support we are getting is growing. Our lowest donation so far has been £2 and that is fabulous, We have raised £82 for the outside furniture so far. We will also allow 3 car parking spaces on the site with the Littleborough Canalside Café and will be considering a Donation parking charge to help Local Projects or Charities.

      I know about it as me and Andrea started it.I donated this odd amount to see if accept penny donations. The Café is doing very well as I talk with people face 2 face but the web isn't as good?

    I have worked as a Fund Raiser for a few years in my employment history and I have been a Volunteer C&RT Lock Keeper resulting in me raising funds for outside Furniture to be purchased. I love helping projects to get started and with new outside tables the Cafe will look lovely.
