Thank you to everyone who helped with our first Crowdfunder campaign. We raised £22,000, which means that after fees are Paypal, Crowdfunder and Stripe deduct their fees Redwing will have around £19,000 to go towards further fundraising efforts to gain a long-term project base. The Art Auction raised over £800 which wil be added to the Building Fund.

On Friday 31st March at 7pm 'Tros an Treys' Cornish dance group and musicians are kindly organising a Ceilidh fundraiser at Redwing.

Keep going!

We've already beat our initial Crowdfunder target of £20,000 and are on our way to our stretch target of £140,000. Please keep telling your contacts about our campaign to secure long-term premises for the project in the Penzance area. 

Nearly 3000

Nearly £3000 has been pledged to the Crowdfunder campaign to find a long-term base for the Redwing project.

If you can help us reach £5000 we hope to get match funding which would top up our funding to $10,000 and then £20,000. Please pledge what you can. As it's an all or nothing campaign nothing will leave any donator's bank account unless we reach our target of £20,000 on March 3rd at 1pm.
