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.
We are a local neighbourhood group trying to raise funds for legal advice to help us stop overseas developers filling in one of Liverpool's most historic docks (West Waterloo Dock) to build four 10-storey blocks, comprising 538 apartments. The developer says he wants to "build communities" - but 70% of the proposed apartments will be one bedroom. They will obscure the view into the World Heritage site from the river and UNESCO have said that if this dock is filled in and built on, Liverpool will lose its World Heritage Status in 2020. You can find a lot more information on our website: Save Waterloo Dock. Please help if you can.

We will fight them on the docks. In the committee room. In the bright light of publicity.And, if needed, in the courts.

This beautiful historic site is already threatened by the building of the new IOM ferry terminal along the edge of the W waterloo Dock. Why not develop the disused area to north of this?

About the fundraiser
I’m Liverpool born and bred and have been part of this dockside community for 20 years. I’m proud that the history of our unique docklands won us World Heritage Status and like everybody in the Save Waterloo Dock campaign I am fighting as hard as I can to preserve that accolade.
