Rumbletums Cafe

£2,935 of £200,000 goal

Raised by 88 people in 24 days
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.

We're very impressed by the power of television. Within 10 minutes of Rumbletums being on East Midlands Today, we'd had another £300 donated. Many, many thanks to all those people who have chosen to support us. We're touched by the kindness of ordinary people who recognise the value of Rumbletums to the young people we work with.

So, into week two of our fundraising campaign and, although things have slowed a bit, today has seen two more donations, which have pushed us over the £1000 mark.

Above is one of many messages we've had from parents of our trainees and friends of Rumbletums, about how much they value what we do. That's why we're determined to save the cafe and all that goes with it.

Thanks to everyone who's helped us on that journey so far.

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.
