    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.


    Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council have agreed to sell 22 acres of Craigavon City Park to Southern Regional College to build a Further Education Campus beside the Lake. They did not consult or consider us in their decision. As well as the erection of a19500m2 building, associated parking and two roads that this will bring to our park, it also will bring over 3000 people and 4800 cars to the park every day. Effectively our park will become a college campus and it will be lost to us forever. We need to challenge Council's decision to sell a well used Community Resource without any consultation with us as residents and users of the park. We have the support of more than 5000 local people and we now need to raise a legal challenge against ABC Council. To do this we need to raise funds. Our initial target of £220 was the amount we needed to pay the application fee to apply for a judicial review. We hit this and now we need to raise an additional £10,000 to cover Court fees. Anything raised above this will pay for the cost of our legal representation. Council made this decision without considering or consulting with resident's and park users as key stakeholders. Processes and procedures have not been followed and we have been treated unfairly. Please help us challenge them. Any donation however small will bring us a step closer to saving our park. Even £1 will make a difference. Thank you in advance.

      We are a group of local residents who have established a community group to stop Southern Regional College being built in our park. This is our park and we want to keep it that way.
