The latest round of the Mayor’s Crowdfund London initiative has now closed.
We’ve seen a fantastic response from Londoners, with over 200 ideas posted up on Spacehive since we launched in April. Over 1000 of you joined us at various events and workshops to help shape your project and prepare a crowdfunding campaign.
We’ve since received 78 verified pitches for a pledge from the Mayor, by far our biggest and best round. Thank you for all of your ideas and we wish those who pitched the best of luck in your campaigns.
The Mayor’s Regeneration team will be reviewing pitches over the coming weeks and making pledges to the best in late July.
Have a look at the live campaigns and back something in your area!

My two aims are to help bring communities together and to help raise money for charity. The three charities I have in mind are Save the children, Crisis and GOSH.
The auditions and the acts will be aimed at ages 10 - 16 and then from there there will be a narrowing number of people who will be through to singing in the actual talent show. The talent show will have winners for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
Working with women in Bethnal Green, Sew Talented teaches textile skills to adults who produce and sell handmade products both to support the charity and to gain valuable work experience. With Tower Hamlets being very ethnically diverse, the women who participate not only learn new skills but also have the opportunity to learn English as a second language. This helps many of our learners enter the workplace or go on to further courses for the first time. The success of our course is demonstrated by our talented course tutor Aziza - a previous student of the course who has taken the project from strength to strength.
Sew Talented has been running in Tower Hamlets for over 10 years - and now we need your help to continue to secure it's future for another year.
St Michael & All Angels Steel Orchestra (SMA3SO) is the flagship for St Michael's Youth Project (SMYP). SMYP was established in 1996 and since its humble beginnings, we provide young people, aged 8-25, from the borough of Brent and surrounding boroughs, provisions in musical, educational, recreational and personal development activities, all year round. Since 1996 St Michael & All Angels Steel Orchestra has grown from an 8 piece youth ensemble to a 70-piece at full capacity. SMA3SO aims to engage young people through music (mainly steelpans) and open doors for disadvantaged young people from a variety of backgrounds, and help tackle the complicated, personal and social problems the community was facing, challenging the negative perception of young people within the community with a positive promotion of self and engaging with the community through community events. Our Steel Orchestra has an eclectic repertoire spanning from Mozart to Stevie Wonder to Lord Kitchener and more.
Trackspeed1-UK is an established training group of club, national and international level athletes based at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre. Head Coach John Powell is hoping to develop a permanent 'Academy' group which will avail his skills and the experience of his more senior athletes to entry level your people aged from 11 years, and who will be offered training sessions twice a week aside from the main squad. They will also be encouraged to take part in local competitions as well as being given the chance to take part in individual time trials. the emphasis would be on participation and its healthy byproducts, but the development of obvious athletic talent would also be a priority. This has been piloted with significant success this last academic year, but ongoing coaching and club membership costs, plus facility costs and lack of kit and equipment has deterred many from sustaining their initial interest.
We want to restore Wapping's historic river stairs. From the 1500s until the 1960s the river stairs were an integral part of this maritime area just east of Tower Bridge. The closure of the London Docks in the 1960s meant that the stairs, which had been used by Watermen until the 18th century and more latterly by dock companies, fell into disrepair.
We want to stem this neglect and get the stairs back to an acceptable safety level to enable public access to the dazzling and intriguing Thames foreshore. While most of the stairs have disappeared, the risk to the heritage of Wapping is that the lack of access has caused a disconnect in peoples’ memories of Wapping before it became a chiefly residential area. We want to re-connect the historic relationship between Wapping and its river heritage. Restoring this river staircase we hope will be the first of many as it is part of a larger project to restore and repair all 9 of the river stairs in Wapping.
