A workshop is being run by the online platform Crowdfund to support those in Torbay who want to raise funds to improve the lives of residents.

The workshop, which will be taking place on Monday 16 March 2020 at Paignton Library from 7 pm to 9 pm, is open to anyone who would like to know more about Crowdfunding and how to start building a Crowdfunded project.

We joined the Crowdfund platform in February this year and have pledged £10,000 towards local community projects. We are looking for projects to fund that not only make a positive impact in the community but supports wellbeing, works towards a better environment, rewards innovation or can improve resident’s lives.

Leader of Torbay Council, Councillor Steve Darling, said: “This workshop is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to find out more information on how to best use the Crowdfund platform as well as how to raise funds for your ideas that will improve our local communities’ lives.

“Crowdfunding allows community groups and projects to easily set-up an online project where they can coordinate their fundraising in one place. Crowdfunding is also a great way to make projects accessible to more people, trusts and corporate bodies that are looking to invest in community projects.”

Crowdfund Torbay will support community groups, social enterprises, charities and individuals across the bay to raise money from the crowd and unlock extra funding from other organisations.
