Councillor Peter Smith, Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development, said: “This event is a great opportunity for you to learn everything about crowdfunding in Crawley.

“I really encourage people to take advantage of the free support.

“After the success of our launch event in June, it’s been great to see the platform take off with three projects reaching their funding goal and another only six per cent away.

“Crowdfund Crawley gives local people an online platform to raise funds for community projects that make a difference to our town – also potentially unlocking grants and other funds.”
