Rumbletums Cafe

£3,269 of £50,000 goal

Raised by 102 people in 2 months
Created July 23, 2018
Rumbletums Cafe and Training Project was set up to offer vocational training and work experience placements to young people and young adults (16-30) with learning disabilities. It's done this successfully since 2011 and now employs five staff and has space for up to 30 trainees. As well as this, it has become a community hub in Kimberley and also offers a parent and toddler group, a Silver Screen film night for older people, regular social events for young people with disabilities and subsidised room hire space for local voluntary organisations and community groups.

For the last 7 years, Rumbletums has rented its premises at a discounted rent, but now the landlords want to sell the building within the next year... at a cost of £200,000. Rumbletums is therefore faced with having to buy the premises, move out or wind up the project.

There are no suitable alternative premises locally and no-one associated with the project, now or in the past, wants it to end. The need for supported training for young people with learning disabilities is as great as it ever was and the local community values the other services that Rumbletums offers.

Therefore, Rumbletums is going to try to raise £200,000 to buy the building in order to continue - and expand - the project.

If you aren't able to contribute financially to our appeal, you can still help us by sharing our campaign on social media.

Thanks very much.

Donations have slowed down a bit over the past week or so. But don't worry though, I'm not asking for anyone to donate again! What you could do to help us is to share this page in social media again. The more shares we get, the more people will see our story and maybe want to support us.

Thanks very much.

We've just broken through the £3000 barrier. It may only be a small part of the total amount we need to raise in order to buy the building but it represents the support of 93 people so far. That's 93 people who believe in Rumbletums and want us to carry on doing what we do. We're very grateful for that.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
