A heartfelt thanks from us for the HCC donation which enabled us to reach our Crowdfunder target. You were literally the donors who carried us over the line.

I have learnt a whole new set of communication skills to encourage community giving. I found the crowdfunding process easy to understand and navigate with the online tool allowing me to create a simple 'shop window’ to showcase and explain our project to the general public .It greatly increased our project’s visibility within our community and allowed us to reach out to other communities so they can connect what we are doing and how it might benefit their communities also.
