Cotswolds crowdfunder helping communities

Cotswold District Council is launching an online crowdfunding platform to give people the chance to seek financial support for their ideas to improve local places.

Crowdfund Cotswold launches on February 22 with a virtual launch event and the aim of funding ideas put forward by local communities.

Councillor Jenny Forde, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: "We can't wait to see what ideas and initiatives our residents will put forward to Crowdfund Cotswold.

"Local people are best placed to understand the challenges and opportunities in their local area and this will put their ideas in the driving seat.

"We would also love to hear from any businesses or organisations who care about the Cotswolds to join us in offering support to project ideas so we can turbocharge the success of locally-led campaigns together. The more people that get involved in Crowdfund Cotswold the better."

The deadline to put forward your idea is April 21 with people and organisations able to pledge as little as £2 towards a project.
