    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.

    Story

    The Horwich & District Hub has been in operation for one year and has been directly supporting 25 or so people each week, with further people indirectly supported. Since the lockdown for Covid-19 our client base has almost doubled, whilst two of our three Trustees are isolating. This has massively increased the workload of our remaining active Trustee and strained our resources, especially with storage capacity. We have been successful in sourcing food and are now also providing food to other organisations who support ex-service personnel, the elderly and other food providers.

    In order to service the increased throughput of food our storage facility has become inadequate. In addition we have attracted additional volunteers. To see us through this crisis we estimate that we need in the region of £200/month to pay for additional storage capacity, additional insurance costs for volunteers and out-of-pocket expenses for volunteers. No one knows how long this crisis is going to last but our help is needed more than ever and will continue to be important for a long time into the future.

    We have been forced to crowdfund because we are not a registered Community Interest Organisation we cannot apply for many of the funding opportunities that exist.

      Just a note to say thank you to all those who have kindly donated to The Horwich & District Hub. We are continuing to directly support around 50 people each week helping them and their dependants in this time of crisis. We would appreciate it if our supporters will share our appeal page to widen its reach. Thank you again.
