Has everyone seen out project of the week? We love New Mills Festival and Lantern Parade!
We think it’s fantastic that so many people want to contribute money to these great ideas. However, not only do we love it when people are willing to put money into a project but what we love is when project owners ask people for their time and skills to help their ideas become a reality.
It’s smiles all round for Crowdfunder HQ today as two fantastic Cornish projects hit their target. First to complete was The Art of Surfing who managed to raise £1,567 who were then followed shortly after by Shutterpod who smashed their 1k target, ending on 132%.
This weekends success was The Bomberdrome Live Show! The Bomberdrome is the cycle wall of death, sound scary? Well the guys behind this great idea have just managed to raise £580 to take the bomberdrome to the Bristol Cycling Festival.

Josie Purcell, project owner of Shutterpod, talks to Tiffany Truscott about all things Shutterpod. She explains why it’s ‘not just about funding yourself, it’s creating something that can benefit other people.’
Emily Smith talks to Tallie and discovers how she managed to raise such a large amount in a matter of hours and why the idea behind Turning Earth is ground breaking for the UK.
We love it when a project gets it and this one definately got it! Tallie aimed to raise 8k to open the Turning Earth Ceramics Studio and after only two days has smashed this target by already raising £9,665.
It’s fantastic to see project owners wanting to showcase the talents of a number of people and the latest project to do this is Demented Eloquence.
Crowdfudner HQ love creative projects and this one is right up there with the best. Three Bridges Gallery was stemmed from a very simple concept: take three canal bridges, three artists, three days in summer and create the world’s first towpath pop-up gallery.
We love it when people collaborate to make a great idea happen. Photography and photojournalism students from Staffordshire University joined forces to raise £250 to help make their exhibition a huge success.
It’s that time of the week again when we bring you yet another success story. This time it’s a collective of 13 photography degree students at The Manchester College, who raised £225 to showcase a collection of their works at an End Of Year exhibition. The Togaedere Collective Photography Exhibition is just one of the many creative[…]

Jo is a writer and digital learning designer from Darlington, she asked the crowd to help her raise £350 so she could celebrate the life and work of acclaimed self portrait artist Frida Kahlowith. The money raised will go towards[…]
Friday success: My Thought Doodle Exhibition! Donna loves to doodle but decided why should these drawings stay in notebooks and scraps of paper, why can’t everyone see them? Donna asked the crowd to help her raise £300 so she could exhibit her work at ‘Cafe So What?’ Today she reached her target with a massive 20 days[…]
