CrowdFund Leicester is all about connecting people, communities, businesses and resources to good ideas that will improve our City. If you have an idea why not share it with the City Mayor and the crowd to gain support and make your idea a reality. By working together we can make Leicester an even better place that is shaped and used by people, businesses and other stakeholders in the city. We are looking for community groups and voluntary organisations to share innovative ideas that will help shape your community for the better. You will know best about what will work in your local area, so why not share your idea and let others join in? What would make a difference to your local area and bring people together? Upload your idea here and see how you can make it happen. CrowdFund Leicester is a great way to get people, including the City Mayor, to back your project idea and help make it a reality through crowdfunding.

Our Journey

Gorse Hill City Farm - Disabled Parking started fundraising!2 weeks ago
Leicester Outdoor Pursuit Centre: KLR
Leicester Outdoor Pursuit Centre: KLR joined CrowdFund Leicester2 weeks ago

Following years of flooding and riverbank erosion, the kayak launch is at risk of collapsing into the river. Used by up to 10,000 people per year, the kayak launch provides the access point for individuals, families, schools and a variety of community clubs to get onto and off the River Soar in Leicester, supporting the development of paddle sports. The proposed project would involve placing pilings into the river, back-filling the space behind, adding a new concrete launch area and access from high ground down onto the launch area. This would future-proof this important facility, which is used every day that we are open. The Centre now attracts visitors and users from across the UK and we anticipate demand on this facility to grow in the months and years ahead. This makes it really important to carry out this reconstruction sooner rather than later.
