Event description

Description

Growing Great Places is a new community crowdfunding initiative which is all about bringing people and places together. As part of this programme we are running two free community workshops in late June and early July.

It would help us if you could book onto the event taking place nearest to where you or your group are based. See here for links to both events.

  1. North Kirklees – covering Dewsbury & Mirfield, Batley & Spen - 25th of June, 6.00 - 8.00pm
  2. South Kirklees – covering Huddersfield and Rural (Colne Valley, Holme Valley, Denby Dale and Kirkburton)- 3rd of July, 6.00 - 8.00pm

As part of this programme, we'll be providing extra support to residents and groups with ideas. Along with workshops and tailored project support, there will be a fund of £50,000 available with projects potentially getting pledges of up to £5,000 to support their campaign.

Come to one of our free workshops to:

  • Learn about the program and how you can get involved
  • Hear about the funding available and the process to apply
  • Learn about what makes a great crowdfunding project
  • Get tips and advice on running a successful crowdfunding campaign

Our towns, villages and communities are the strength of Kirklees. You might have a little idea that can have a big impact by bringing a place together. Or you might need some help growing support for an ambitious project that’s just getting started. This is the event to help get you started.
