What is crowdfunding?

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


£500 has been raised in our first JustGiving push, many thanks for all your lovely messages and kind donations, copied below. So just £500 to go!

Rob is tramping 1000 miles from Carlisle to London then up the Thames Path to Oxford..
The scheme will cost just over £20K. We have £4K so far. Your donation will make a difference!
You can follow his progress on the club website www.newcastlecc.org.uk
Rob calls it his Proclaimers tour! "I will walk 500 miles ... and I will walk 500 more!" He aims to finish in September.

* In 2012 the club raised £130K to make the entrance and pavilion ground floor accessible.
* In 2013 a verandah make an accessible area for the terrace.
But the first floor and balcony remain a no-go area - these include the popular Meeting Room and the wonderful heritage pictures with information about the 125 year history of the Jesmond Ground.
