Rumbletums Cafe

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.

Thanks to everyone's generosity, our total on GoFundMe continues to go up but, just as importantly, every penny donated here is making a valuable contribution to a whole variety of fundraising activities that have seen our grand total reach over £15,000, as of last week.

So big, big thanks to everyone again. Please keep sharing our page on social media and help us get even closer to our target of £50,000.

We've just crashed through the £4000 barrier thanks to a donation of £680 from Susan at Virtual Runner UK. We're very grateful to her and all the people who ran to raise this amount of money. Next stop £5000.

So, as we approach the three month anniversary of our GoFundMe page going live, you can see that our total has reached £3,319. However, the lovely Lauren Mowberry, whose mum helped to set up Rumbletums and whose sister is one of our trainees, ran the Oxford half-marathon last week and has raised over £2000 through her own GoFundMe page.

That's her and Nicola in the picture.

Adding the money Lauren raised to the amount donated through this page, our total is now standing at £5,519, with another £50 having been donated this week too.

So thanks again to everyone... and please keep sharing our page wherever and whenever you can.

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.
