The Cheshire West Crowd

13 May 2021

Updated 13/05/21: You can now register for the online launch event - see below for details.

Created by Cheshire West and Chester Council in partnership with Spacehive. The Cheshire West Crowd empowers people to create projects that will make a positive difference in their community.

By running a crowdfunding campaign, projects can attract funds to enable ideas to be brought to life. This new platform offers businesses the opportunity to contribute to these local projects and to connect with their local communities alongside the council and other backers.

We understand that it has been a challenging time for many businesses. For those that can, we ask you to consider joining The Cheshire West Crowd which offers a creative and collaborative way to fuel Cheshire West and Chester’s recovery.

Pledging to projects could be a low-resource route to:
• deliver your corporate social responsibilities
• demonstrate Social Value impact
• deepen employee engagement and boost volunteering
• develop positive PR through campaign success stories.

The Cheshire West Crowd online launch will take place on Monday the 7th of June at 6pm; click here to register for the event.

Ahead of the launch on Monday 7 June, Spacehive can help you to explore how your organisation could get involved and support. Whether this is promoting the initiative, pledging to projects or putting forward a fund.
