Weʼre raising £1,000 to support the wonderful Swansea Tidal Lagoon Project
- South Wales
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.
Welcome to my independent crowd funding page to support the wonderful Swansea Tidal Lagoon Project. I myself, along with hundreds of others, have been truly disappointed by the governments decision to turn down the tidal lagoon project.
Therefore I decided, for the sake of the future of our country and generations to come, that I should do something to support this extraordinary project. This is where you come in. This crowd funding site is to help raise money from the people of Wales and further, to show all the other investors out there that this is something that we want...no NEED for our future and we support it 100%
1 million pounds is just the beginning but if we can show together how much it means to us a people then hopefully the Swansea Tidal Lagoon will get backing from bigger investors as well and it will finally see the support it deserves to go forward!
Wednesday marks 64 years since the opening of the world’s first nuclear power station. That generated just 5 MW of electricity but if it hadn’t happened the industry wouldn’t have grown to develop the 3260 MW Hinckley Point C. In the same way, if the 320 MW Swansea lagoon doesn’t happen it’s unlikely that another lagoon in Cardiff, which is estimated will be able to power every home in Wales, will be built.
Today’s announcement leaves us asking what is the government’s long-term plans for renewable energy?
Harri Lloyd-Davies, President of the South Wales Chamber of Commerce
The tidal lagoons bring an opportunity for the rest of the world to be reminded that Wales, and the UK are places where innovation can be encouraged, supported and thrive – something that is perhaps particularly poignant during these uncertain Brexit times.

From an Englishman dismayed by yet another short-sighted decision by a government displaying a cynical disregard for earlier promises and environmental consequences.Good luck.

What an amazing idea to set this up - thank you for giving me a concrete way of showing my support for this project. I love the idea of giving my 30p a year for 90 years in one hit to help!

As a Welshman living in England I believe in this project

I'm giving £27 which (at 30p/year for 90 years) is the total amount extra the lagoon would have added to my energy bills.
