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.

Barnsley Youth Choir is a charity that provides outstanding opportunities to over 400 children who live in an area of significant deprivation.
This summer they are keen to take up to 140 young people for the trip of their lives - they will perform in the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Edinburgh on the international stage. This is the largest arts festival in the world and will include over 50,000 performances from groups from across the globe. The members will perform in the amazing Greyfriars Kirk twice per day and also perform in a number of other venues in Edinburgh. We hope to perform on the BBC stage once again as we did in 2016.
They need to raise £50,000 in total to make this project work. We've already made a fantastic start! The children themselves have raised over £18,000 in a number of amazing fundraising efforts including bag packing and a 14 hour, through the night, non-stop 'Singathon' - a night that certainly wasn't for the faint hearted! They are working so hard to raise money themselves and are not wanting pay outs - they just need some help along the way. We have also had some really kind donations from others. We hope that this Crowdfunding Project will help raise £12,000 which will ensure that every child can afford to go.
