Calderdale Rising Update

Calderdale Rising Update

There has been a lot of activity by many businesses for #CalderdaleRising, and new rewards are being added to the Crowdfunding page regularly. If you pledge some money to #CalderdaleRising you can gain some amazing rewards at very discounted prices.

To read more about the efforts of this author you can check out his recent blog post here:

There has been some fabulous support from all the businesses, and more, both in terms of the rewards that have been offered  on the site, and raffle prizes that make up “The Big Raffle” – probably the longest list of prizes you’ll ever see!

Raffle tickets sales are now being added to the site as pledges by the businesses that have been selling them, plus online sales (now closed) will be added shortly – a phenomenal £1,312 has been raised from online ticket sales alone!
The Big Raffle draw is at 3pm tomorrow, the only place we know of that definitely has raffle tickets is Pennine Provisions, otherwise it is worth possibly trying in the Antiques Centre in Hebden, Bonsalls and The Banyan Tree, Silly Billy’s has sold out of raffle tickets and raised £100 pounds, if every business involved raised £100 then we would have an extra £10,000+ to put in the pot. 

Rewards on the Crowdfunding page that are new  include:

A day out on the farm! A guided tour of Riverford Home Farm near Thirsk plus an organic veg box to take home £25pp
A beautiful handmade garlic bread & chopping board from Bonsalls £30 unique & only 10 available!
A 2 hour trip in a sporting classic – a beautiful Red E-Type Jag! £125 and limited to 8. Live the dream!
And some beautiful engineered real oak flooring – massive discount on RRP!

YOU can still help by visiting the Crowdfunding Page and simply sharing the campaign, it is easy to do from the page. We have not yet reached our £150k target and as Kirsty pointed out in her recent interview with the BBC, we need a lot more than £150k and it is likely that the amount raised will not be match-funded pound for pound by government funds. Simply spending a few moments of your time to share the campaign could bring in the Big Angel investors that we so need.
