If you have a great idea for a project that will benefit your local community, join our workshop to find out how you could attract a pledge of up to £5,000 from H&F Council.

This autumn H&F Council is running a new funding round on the H&F Hive, our crowdfunding initiative which supports local community projects. The council set up the H&F Hive to help local people raise money to turn their great ideas into reality.

From a party in the park to a new community kitchen to a theatre production by young people, the H&F Hive has already seen 12 great projects raise more than £185,000, bringing together 650 local people, the council and other large funders to support projects.

“We’re delighted that the H&F Hive has helped so many great ideas become reality, and we want to open this opportunity to as many community groups as possible,” said Cllr Sue Fennimore, Deputy Leader of H&F Council.

If you are planning activities around Christmas or New Year, want to raise money ready for a spring gardening project, or have ideas for bringing your local community together around an arts project or a tea dance, join our Fast Track Crowdfunding Workshop on 18 September at Bush Theatre to find out how to make it happen.

At the workshop you will learn about crowdfunding on the H&F Hive, how to access funds from organisations including the council, get advice on creating your campaign plan, and how to get support from the wider community.

Come and join us and find out how you can turn your great idea into a reality!
