Yesterday, Crowdfunder launched a campaign to inspire projects to ‘leap into action’ on February 29th and start turning their ideas into reality.
We decided to give away £1,000 to one luck winner who could impress us by telling us more about their great idea and how they would go about getting it funded.
After launching the competition at 2pm, by 5pm we had already received a staggering 450 submissions! We were blown away by the number and the quality of the proposals.
All applications were reviewed on three criteria: pioneering, inspiring and community benefit. From there we were able to choose a winner..

Dawn Bebe, Communications Director at Crowdfunder said “This project stood out from the outset. The not for profit organisation has strong roots in the community, with the main aim being to up-skill people to be able to fix their own equipment and to encourage more people to get up and get active!
We were particularly encouraged by the new community workshops that this funding would allow the project to offer including a parent/child class and drop in sessions for the elderly.“
London Bike Kitchen will be launching their project on Thursday 3 March so look out!
