Crowdfund in Chelmsford with The Essex Crowd

Crowdfunding is a great way to get your community project up and running.

Got an idea to improve your local area? Know that it will gain support from your community? Then what is holding you back? is a movement to pitch your project idea and plan exactly how it could happen and the budget required.

This is exactly what the Repair Hub in Springfield, Chelmsford did – the group planned and pitched to The Essex Crowd and if successful is aiming to chat to hub attendees on a weekly basis about the benefits of recycling, but also to teach important skills such as sewing, repurposing and refashioning – make and mend before buying new.

To see a project happen it needs to be fully funded by the community that will be benefitting and pledges of support can be as little as £2.

Be a part of your community and tell someone about your idea to improve your local area!
