We smashed our first fundraising target, but there's still plenty more to do!
Following the fantastic support received from you all in our first crowdfunding campaign, which raised over £6,500, we have now applied to the Aviva Community Fund for another £500 to pay for planning and environmental surveys so that we can get our project to the next level.
We are very grateful to those who have already supported us. For anyone who did not have the chance before, please contribute to the Moormead Community & Sports Pavilion Aviva Community Fund crowdfunding website at https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/mp. The more donations we have by 10th March, when the website goes live for Aviva employees, the more likely we are to attract Aviva funding to our project.
Richmond Council's Terms & Conditions
We will be applying for consent for this project from Richmond Council as it is not currently supported by Richmond Council. If Richmond Council supports this project, any donations from local organisations towards the Pavilion regeneration project may allow those organisations to use the facilities at Moormead - eg pitches or tennis courts for free to the extent that the organisation's donation's cover the fees that would have normally been paid. This offer is subject to Richmond Council's terms and conditions, the most important of which are as follows: all of the funding is in place and full planning permission is in place.
In the event that we are unable to proceed with the new Pavilion, all money raised will be used according to our charitable objectives
There are still plenty of opportunities to get involved!

I made a donation to the project. How will my money be used?
The charity now has the funds to pay for design and planning expenses and aims to submit a planning application in October 2019. This includes expenses like:
- an official bat survey
- an official tree survey
- planning fees payable to the local council
- architects fees for preparing the planning submission
- legal and consulting fees for advice regarding the project
Wherever possible we are using the skills of local residents on a voluntary basis to minimise the costs of the project (you can volunteer too!).
What difference has the crowdfunding made?
Moormead Community & Sports Pavilion is a charity set up by local residents in St Margarets and Twickenham. To get this far we have relied almost entirely on volunteers giving their time and the funds raised from the community will help us get through the next stages of the project.
The outpouring of support has also galvanised local Concillors: Councillor for St Margaret’s and North Twickenham Alex Ehmann recently commented: “The progress of the project is great news.” He continued: “Local residents have risen to the challenge with their contributions and, as ward councillors, we’ll continue to support the considerable effort being employed to bring the Pavilion back into community use.”
