The City of London Corporation has launched a new campaign to help fund community groups in Aldgate.
The ‘Our Aldgate’ campaign has been given £30,000 in funding and there is a maximum pledge of £5,000 to support crowdfunded projects.
The corporation has teamed up with crowdfunding platform Spacehive, who are based in Aldgate, to run the project.
A variety of projects can win funding. Arts, culture, support and education can all receive support, as well as projects to improve the appearance of the area.
Chris Gourley, CEO of Spacehive, said: “Spacehive is very excited to kick off this initiative with the City Corporation. We are based locally, just off Brick Lane, and it is a great opportunity to work even more closely with our surrounding community.
“Aldgate has always been a place of creativity and innovation and we cannot wait to see what exciting projects come forward.”
