    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.




    The River Yealm Regatta has seen the iconic Crabber boats raced in the regatta since 1981 and this year is the first year that they have undergone significant restoration to ensure their continuation for another 40 years.

    The River Yealm Regatta Committee is volunteer led and needs to pay for this cost to ensure the Regatta can continue over the coming years. Please help and support this important part of our local heritage!
