    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.


    The Nelson Mandela Community Programme (TNMCP) was established for the purposes of achieving four objectives, which are; advance citizenship and raise the awareness and the profile of the African Heritage people living in Leicester and Leicestershire. Advance art, culture and heritage by erecting a statue of Nelson Mandela in the city of Leicester, encourage and educate African Heritage people of Leicester and Leicestershire to take a leading role in shaping the future of Leicester and Leicestershire and to be an agent for the African Heritage people of Leicester and Leicestershire.

    So here we are, nearing Nelson Mandela's 100th Birthday and looking to raise as much money as possible to get his statue put up in Nelson Mandela Park Leicester.

    The City Mayor, Peter Soulsby, is in support of it. He promises to donate the land and plinth. We feel that where the statue is erected should be dependent on what the people of Leicester decide. We have a Petition going for people of Leicester to have their say.

    The Celebration will take place on Saturday 21st July 2018 in Nelson Mandela Park, Leicester, what would have been 100th (Centenary) of Nelson Mandela's Birthday on 18th July 2018.
