Help us to launch our Spacehive Crowdfunder

Published on 02 May 2024 04:47 PM


We have just launched a new crowdfunding campaign to raise funds so we can continue to develop and resource our social activity groups in rural and coastal communities.  The groups provide lonely and socially isolated older people with the chance to make friends and maintain social connections. The prevalence of loneliness among older people in rural and coastal areas needs urgent attention.
Spacehive has the highest success rate of any crowdfunding platform at 85%. This means that nearly 9 out 10 community projects on Spacehive hit their fundraising target.
We are looking to raise £8,000 - the campaign launched on Tuesday 30th April and runs until Monday 22nd July 2024. 

Here's where we need your help ...........

We need as many people as possible including local businesses to get involved and pledge money through Spacehive to help us reach our target.  It can be from £2, up to whatever you want to pledge, but the more people we get involved, the more momentum we achieve ... and the increase our chance of hitting our target!

‘Pledging' means making a payment to our crowdfunding campaign, the amount of which is then added to its total. If the campaign is successful, then we receive the funds and start delivering the project. If it's not successful and we don’t hit out target, then you will be refunded your pledge!

You can pledge money by clicking the following link with takes you to our project page on the Spacehive website:  Rural Friendship and Chat Groups ( or via the QR code below which will take you to the same web page. If you then click on 'Back this Project' the website will take you through very simple steps to make your donation. 

PLEASE PLEASE consider making a donation (it can be a little as £2) to help kickstart our crowdfunding campaign. It's going to be a huge task to raise this money, but we are determined to achieve our target  - and every little really does help. 

Help us to help older people by getting involved!
