    Weʼve raised £2,913 to Lochwinnoch Arts Festival

    Funded on Friday, 3rd April 2020

    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.


    We are asking you to help us raise £2,500 to help pay costs associated with the 19th annual 16-day March Lochwinnoch Arts festival ,run by volunteers on a non-profit basis. We are asking for support as at short notice we are unable to use our village hall and due to this, we have had to move a number of events to smaller venues, drastically reducing the seating capacity and income. Like many small rural communities, we are disadvantaged by having insufficient and unreliable public transport to access the arts in towns or cities like Paisley or Glasgow. The festival aims to provide a host of art experiences for people on low incomes, and who do not have a car.

    With your help we can continue to keep the Lochwinnoch art experience affordable to our fragile rural community.

      Dear All We managed to deliver four of our events at the festival before the goverment guidlines to cancel all social contact events. Can we thank you for your support we have to pay up front costs and media and advertising costs. We will use any remaining money to deliver the festival in 2021. Can we thank you so much for amazing support and kindness. Let's hope we are all well and can get together at many cultural events in the future.

      Morag, wishing you and your team continuing success with the annual Lochwinnoch Arts Festival. This event is why Lochwinnoch has become known as Lochwinnoch - Village of Culture and Heritage.
