£510raised of £3,000 target by 12 supporters

    Weʼve raised £510 to support Soft Touch Arts and Hope Against Cancer, two incredible charities here in Leicester, by the end of 2017.

    Funded on Thursday, 19th January 2017

    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.


    We have set a fundraising target of £3000 over the next two years, for our chosen charities, Hope Against Cancer and Soft Touch Arts. Both charities are based locally, and are extremely close to our hearts.

    During this time, we will be completing several challenges and events and we would love your support!

    Soft Touch Arts help disadvantaged young people and support them with challenges in their lives, by engaging them in projects which build creative, social and employability skills.

    Our MD, Gemma, has been working with Soft Touch Arts as a Business Mentor to one of their young people, for the past 12 months. It was seeing the impact that the charity has on so many deprived young people in Leicestershire, that Gemma wanted to support on a greater level.

    Hope Against Cancer is a local cancer research charity and they work in partnership with local universities and hospitals to make sure that Leicestershire is a hub of expertise in cancer research and treatment. Since they were set up in 2003, they have funded over 60 research projects tackling many different forms of cancer.

    We want to raise as much as possible for these two worthy causes, and we welcome any donations that you can offer.
