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.

Sheffield University Wind Orchestra and the University of Sheffield Brass Band are heading to Utrecht in the Netherlands in June 2020 for our annual tour. We play concerts in the surrounding area during our visit, and these are a great opportunity for our members to play in front of new and often sizeable audiences. For many of our members this is their first ever opportunity to play music abroad, and the tour will be an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives. We're looking to raise some money to support our journey to the Netherlands so we can entertain Dutch audiences and experience the joy of performing.
A group of 17 members from across both ensembles are collectively running 1630 km (the distance from Sheffield to Utrecht and back) over a period of 8 weeks as a fundraiser for Tour to Utrecht 2020. We have members taking part with a range of running abilities, from absolute beginners to people with half marathons under their belt.
