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.
We are trying to raise funds to replace our existing youth club building which was put in place 40 years ago as a temporary building. Besides being home to the village youth club, the building also provides a base for brownies, zumba classes, a karate club as well as providing a breakfast club and after school club. It is also used when community events take place in the field. The local authority have agreed to meet the cost of clearing the site and planning for the new building which means we need to find the money to build the new building.
Why is it important to our community to build a new youth club? Well this is what adults and children have said...
Child A "The youth club is a place to hang out on a Friday night. It gets you off the xbox and out of the house. It's a place to be rather than on the pavement."
Child B "It stops you feeling depressed and alone."
Child C "It helps you to make new friends."
Adult A "Lympstone youth club provides a safe and fun place to go for our young people to develop their social skills, enjoy healthy activity, make friends, help reach their full potential, and build confidence. These kids are the future and they deserve to have a premises that shows how much we value them."
Adult B "The youth club hut is so much more than a building. It is a meeting place for the teens and tweenagers of our village, a sports venue for those who train for martial arts, or haven for those who wish to gain inner peace with yoga, the venue for another birthday to be shared with friends and so much more."
