Rachel Aslet-Clark, Apuldram’s
General Manager writes “We are pitching to West Sussex County Council
(WSCC)’s Community Initiative Fund for £5,000 towards a new contract gardening
van and we have to do this via a crowd-funding site called Spacehive.
“Please visit our crowd-funding page by clicking this link https://www.spacehive.com/apuldram where you can read more about the project, the funding required and make a donation pledge starting from £2. To be in with a chance of obtaining a donation from WSCC we need to demonstrate that we have plenty of crowdfunding backers, even if the pledges are only small. WSCC make their decisions on 5th February so time is short; please make a pledge and share with others (note: no money is taken from your account until our target of £10,000 has been met).
“FYI – The cost of the van is £21,000; we already have a £10,000 pledge from the Forbes Foundation but need to raise the rest of the funds; there is up to £5,000 available from WSCC. To pitch to them we have to use the Spacehive crowdfunding platform.”
