Workshop for Aylesbury community projects

Community projects are being given a chance to get advice and network in Aylesbury today.

Our Vale is a community crowdfunding page helping people in Aylesbury Vale raise money for local projects. 

Along with Spacehive, a funding platform, the workshop wants to help people with their ideas. 

The event is focused on people raising money for community projects, including enhancing local streets and neighbourhoods, improve local play areas or ways to bring people together.

The workshop will explain the initiative, provide insights and training on how to prepare an idea for crowdfunding and gives the opportunity for networking. 

The event is also preparing attendees for the next round of funding by Our Vale. 

In order to help projects, the funding platform wants people to apply for a share of the £200,000 funding they have available. 

The deadline for the next batch of funding is February 10th.

Councillor Howard Mordue, Cabinet Member for Finance and Resources commented:

"Already, AVDC's Our Vale fund has pledged towards six fantastic community projects which have all reached or surpassed their crowdfunding target. These innovative projects have helped transform shared spaces to benefit the local community and we're excited to be able to pledge to even more!

"If you have a community project idea, don't wait until the workshop to get started. The next deadline to pitch to AVDC's Our Vale fund, where you could receive a pledge of up to £5,000 towards your crowdfunding target, is Monday 10 February."
