Four new projects ask for support from the #SeftonCrowd

Four new projects are now live on Sefton Council’s very own crowdfunding platform in the hope of securing vital community support for their work.

From much needed essential cutlery and kitchen equipment for a community group to the creation of a beach clean mural, the latest round of the ‘Sefton Crowd’ is giving community groups a dedicated platform to fund their vital needs.

A number of community projects have hit their funding goals thanks to the Sefton Crowd, a joint initiative between the local authority and national crowdfunding platform Spacehive, to improve the communities where they live.

The latest projects to go live for backing are:

  • Kitchen equipment for the Cherish Group, Southport (£3,881)
  • Computers in the Community Hub, Birkdale (£7,006)
  • Hightown Community Hub, Hightown (£15,381)
  • Beach Clean Mural, Southport (£1,002)

Supporting a project can cost as little at £2 and funding may also be available via Sefton Council’s Community Transition Fund.

Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said: “The Sefton Crowd is fast becoming the ‘go to’ platform since its creation and we are delighted to welcome four new projects, which are already beginning to recieve community support!

“We want this initiative to encourage, support and create community projects which make a huge difference to our brilliant borough.

“Support is available to help you develop your campaign from both Sefton Council and Sefton CVS will be available to help you reach your target.”
