What is crowdfunding?

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


On Sunday 14th May Mikron Theatre Company will be appearing at YHA Haworth with their newest show Best Foot Forward, 'A Hike through the History of Youth Hostelling'.

Mikron theatre have been touring their original brand of ‘theatre anywhere for everyone’ for 46 years, in the spring and autumn by road, and in the summer months on board their beloved historic narrowboat, Tyseley who is an amazing 80 years old! 

An intrepid group of 5 staff and supporters will set out from the company’s base on Saturday 13th, hiking North across the moors to see the show at YHA Haworth at 4pm the following day.
The 25 mile hike will take in parts of the Pennine Way and the Calderdale Way, along a Roman road and up-and-down hills along rugged moorland.

Tyseley is the summer tour’s transport and the actor’s floating home.  However, being a working vessel at her ripe old age means that each year she is in need of some TLC.

We need to raise money towards refurbishing the kitchen and replacing some of the boat’s windows.

We've set ourselves a big target - £500 - which will service and replace Tyseley's windows and install a new fridge.

However, if we can exceed the target we can also give our beloved Tyseley a desperately needed new floor in the kitchen and living areas.

As the money 'floods' in (pun intended!) we'll keep you up to date with what we can do with it!

Thank you for your support.

    A huge THANK YOU to a Friend Of Mikron, who has donated £100 - offline - for the fundraiser. JustGiving doesn't allow us to add offline donations to the totaliser icon above for this type of page unfortunately. But that is a great start to the fundraising :)
