£1,330raised of £1,000 target by 42 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,330 to to help pay for decorations, flagging and railings on Standish's Christmas Tree

    Standish, Wigan District, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 10th December 2017

    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.


    Standish Voice, the village's Neighbourhood Forum, has brought together representatives from across the community to improve its Christmas decorations, and we can announce there will be a living tree planted in Standish this year!

    The new tree, with decorations and ultimately paving and railings, will be paid for by a mixture of grants, sponsorship and fundraising and will, hopefully, be a festive focal point we can all be proud of.

    But we need your help!

    We want to raise £1,000 from people across the village to pay for decorations that will make the new Christmas Tree - to be planted in front of St Wilfrid’s Church - the best it can be.

    There were many complaints about the tree and decorations last year, so if people can contribute money, however small the donation, Standish Voice can ensure they will be much better this Christmas.

    Any surplus over the £1,000 will be put towards flagging around the new tree and decorative railings around it. We were planning to fundraise for this next year but it would be brilliant if we could generate enough now.

    Thank-you very much!
