    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    Snug Gallery in Hebden Bridge was flooded on Boxing Day. Despite flooding at home, Ed and Jill managed to save their stock, and hard work may see the gallery reopen soon, BUT a bigger issue remains - the town was decimated and won't fully recover for some time. Without customers the Gallery may not survive the next couple of months. There are no contingencies and no insurance to rely on. Every pound will help. All who donate will become Friends of Snug and receive rewards for their kindness.

    Hebden Bridge is unique because of independent shops like Snug. These must survive for the town to thrive in all its 'quirkiness'. Snug showcases, supports and promotes around 40 UK Designers, Makers and Artists and runs a graduate award for emerging makers. Snug is an asset to Hebden Bridge and the Contemporary Craft and Studio Ceramics industries. Without supporters of such creativity Hebden Bridge will be diminished.
    More personally, I don't want to see such a hard working couple bankrupt.

    Immediately. Once Snug Gallery and the other small independent shops reopen it will signpost to the outside world that Hebden Bridge is 'rising' and people can start to visit this vibrant and beautiful town again.
    All supporters will immediately become 'Friends of Snug' and eligible for Ed's package of 'rewards for kindness' (see Snug website & social media updates for details). www.snug-gallery.com

    Initially, funds will support the ongoing restoration of Snug Gallery and be crucial in ensuring it is able to remain on Market Street in Hebden Bridge. The funds will also help Ed and Jill fulfill the commitments already in place with their exhibitions for 2016. By donating and keeping Snug Gallery alive you are also in turn helping the micro businesses of the Designers, Makers and Artists which Snug represents.
