Our Crowdfunder

The Crowdfunder

In September 2022 we ran a successful Crowdfunder campaign for Frome Community Bike Project to bring the project to life. We raised just over £30,000 to purchase a whole lot of equipment, including:

  • Two shipping containers and a workshop
  • Workshop tools
  • Bike racks
  • Tills and checkout kit
  • Insurance
  • Installation of utilities

What’s a Crowdfunder campaign?

Crowdfunder is a platform where people can pledge amounts of money in return for rewards, or just to donate to a cause that they feel is worthy. We used Crowdfunder as a platform as it offered additional match funding too.

Match funding

Our Crowdfunder campaign received £9,000 match funding from Sport England as part of their Places and Spaces Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games legacy program and £7,000 from British Cycling’s Places to Ride fund.


We had some fantastic support from local businesses who offered rewards for people donating to our campaign plus we offered many of our own rewards. We’d like to say a huge thanks to:
