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 shirt has arrived and the ride is in 4 days! "what are you riding for?" I was asked. So in view of recent news and a great concept; its a new charity, a local charity, and the brainchild of someone who cares. I have often benefited from a 'cup of tea' and a chat (coffee in my case) but many need more skill and the need, sadly, is increasing. Dont Lose Hope has a facebook page but in brief:


Don’t Lose Hope is a new registered charity that will offer a means related counselling service for children, young people, their families and other members of the community. This will be a free service for families/individuals on low income or state benefits, and affordable to working families.

Don’t Lose Hope will be centred around a community cafe which will provide support groups, workshops and advice. The cafe will be staffed by volunteers and trained professionals. This will be a space where anyone will be able to drop in and find someone to talk to, get involved in activities, make friends or just have a slice of cake and a cup of tea. We are hoping this will bring members of the community together from all age groups.

Please help me to help others. I'll do my best on Sunday.

    Many thanks to the early funders and those who have 'shared' the page. Dont Lose Hope is a great concept and I know will be of great benefit to the local community. If you would buy me a pint at the end of my century ride please donate. If you're a tax payer then we can get the gov to help too👍. Ready to go!
