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.


Help Save Our Centre and Church

Our centre is used by many local community groups from baby yoga, to Morris dancing, to art groups and knit and natter groups. Unfortunately the heating system is broken and requires a lot of money to get it sorted. If you can spare any money to help us get our centre (and hopefully our church too) warm and comfortable to use again it would be amazing. Any donation, no matter how small will be much appreciated.

    We have now started the process! Through some fantastic fundraising in our church community we have managed to raise over £1000. The gas supply is in the process of being connected to the Centre, but we still need money for the boilers to be fixed/replaced and get the heating up and running. We are hoping to be able to raise enough to get the Church heating sorted as well, so that we can go back to services in the church. We have made progress and a big thank you to all who have helped us get this far, but we still have quite a way to go.

    Thank you Gill for setting up this page. The church and centre are an integral part of the community and need a good heating system to perform to their maximum potential.

    Please help if you can. Not sure I can face another winter of numerous visits to the boiler house in all weathers.
