£27,856raised of £30,000 target by 830 supporters

    Weʼve raised £27,856 to help replace funds stolen from Barnet's boutique soul festival Summer Soulstice. This annual, family friendly event is run by volunteers.

    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.


    After an amazingly successful Summer Soulstice on June 23rd 2018, within 36 hours of the elation, we were hit with some harsh reality that a robbery had taken place at the Old Elizabethans site after the event. Thieves broke into the building late on Sunday and despite our own stringent security measures, managed to break open the safe vault using cutting gear & hammers. These people have made off with over £45,000 in takings from the event.

    We fear that this money, which everyone generously helped to raise that day, will never be seen again.

    The long-term effects of this theft on our charity event has created uncertainty and has seriously undermined the chances helping people in the local community. Even more worrying is that this has also put all our future fundraising events at risk.

    All of us on the Summer Soulstice committee & in our event crew, are feeling crushed from this awful incident, but we want this annual event, which brings both friends, family & communities together, to have longevity and continue fund raising.

      We'd just like to thank everyone who's shown their love & support to our call for help this summer. Yesterday we presented a cheque for £35,000 to Cherry Lodge Cancer Care at our Big Payback event in Barnet. The total is made up from funds salvaged from this year's event, other fundraisers held locally & further afield, as well as this all-important Crowd Fund page. Your amazing generosity has both raised £'s for a great cause & help save our annual soul all-dayer. Summer Soulstice 2019 takes place Sat 22nd June at OEs, Barnet. See you there.

      So, with such a great response to our plea in the past 3 weeks, many of our friends & supporters told us to keep upping the target. We're mindful of asking people for more but decided that we'd make the final total £30,000 on our crowd fund. We're 88% there, thanks to the love & generosity from all who've donated so far. This will be the final push, aiming to at least recoup ⅔'s of the money that we, & ultimately the charity, were robbed of. We're all extremely grateful to everyone who has cared, shared & given.
