Local people who want to make a difference in their communities are invited to discuss their culture and sport ideas at a free workshop for Crowdfund Lancashire.
Through the Lancashire Culture & Sport Fund, Crowdfund Lancashire will give communities a chance to create and support the projects that matter most to them.
The County Council has allocated £500,000 per year to Lancashire Culture & Sport Fund, with organisations able to get for up to £20,000 to boost projects towards their funding target.
Parish and Town Councils can apply for up to £5,000, while individuals and businesses could get £1,500 towards their live crowdfunding campaigns. With pledges starting at £2, there is also an opportunity for everyone across the county to get involved by supporting projects in their local area.
If you are interested in creating a project and being part of Crowdfund Lancashire, join us and Spacehive, the UK’s leading civic crowdfunding platform, at one of two free workshops.
Whether your project is big or small, these workshops will show participants how to run an amazing crowdfunding campaign to secure the funding to help make your idea happen.
The first workshop takes place this Wednesday, on 14 December. A second workshop will take place and Thursday 12 January.
Cllr Peter Buckley, cabinet member for cultural services at Lancashire County Council, said: “The Lancashire Culture & Sport Fund will enable local people to contribute towards improving their communities, contributing as little as £2.
“But first we need to people to bring forward their innovative ideas and let us guide you through how to make an exciting crowdfunding campaign.
“Whether big or small, the more people that get involved in Crowdfund Lancashire, the greater impact we can make together.”
