We need your support to cover the increased running costs of the centre during the energy crisis.

Why are we crowdfunding?

The cost of living crisis is impacting our small charity. Our gas costs alone are rising by 155%. Add in additional electricity costs, increased wages, higher materials costs, etc and it all adds up. Long Eaton Art Room is a self funded non-profit making charity which is dependent on small grants from other organisations and charities and on individual donations. We cannot afford to pass these additional costs onto our centre users, who are already facing their own cost of living crisis


How we’ll spend the money raised

The current energy crisis and cost of living crisis is having a massive impact on our finances. All donations received in this appeal will go directly into covering the running costs of the charity which will in turn help us to stay open, keep the heat and lights on and continue to provide our services at subsidised rates for the benefit of the whole community. Providing a warm safe space to meet with others and learn new arts and craft skills, improving wellbeing and reducing isolation.



The Co-op warm spaces fund have kindly said that they will match fund any individual’s donations upto £250 per person per donation. That is absolutely wonderful news and we are thrilled. So for every pound you donate, the Co-op warm spaces fund will match it, potentially doubling our fundraising. 


If you are a UK tax payer, if you select the gift aid option the goverment will add a further 25p per every pound to our fundraising at no cost to you.
