Fundraising Events and Ideas

  • Our main source of funds is going to be YOU. So please donate as much as you can to help us compete with private developers who want to purchase this site which is perfect for Rooms of our Own. You can donate via the Local Giving button on this page. Thank you!
  • Please spread the word to anyone you think might be willing to donate via word of mouth and social media. If you are tweeting please use the hashtag “wecanmakeithappen”
  • The most painless way for you to donate is via Easy Fundraising. If you shop online with any of these retailerseasyfundraising-LogoWall-500x400then you can raise funds for us without giving anything!  It does just require one extra click …. so you register with https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/roomso4own and then click through to your preferred retailer; there are over 3,000 so they should be there! Said retailer then gives Rooms of our Own a few pennies. It doesnt affect the price or timing of your purchase in any way. You can also download the DONATION REMINDER app which will remind you whenever you are doing online shopping that you can send a few pence our way completely painlessly!  THANK YOU!
  • We have now set up a Community Benefit Society – or BenCom. As soon as we have identified a new site, or managed to procure our original site in St James St, we will be issuing community shares so you can be a part owner of the project
