Enormous thanks to Longbridge developer St Modwen, who have pledged £1500 to the B31 Voices fundraising campaign.
B31 Voices has been run and self funded by two volunteers, Sas & Marty Taylor, since 2010. The Crowdfunder campaign, which ends on Tuesday (8th December), was set up to raise funds to enable us to improve the service we provide.
The developers’ contribution will be rewarded with an advertising package on B31 Voices.
St Modwen’s Mike Murray said: “B31 Voices is a central part of the South Birmingham community, providing regular updates and sharing stories about those who live, work and spend their leisure time in the area. It is a ‘go to’ forum for local people to share their news, views and daily lives. Set up by Marty and Sas, two local people who live in the area, the B31 voices site and its associated social media pages have so far developed and grown into a fantastic local platform without any external funding.
“To show our support for this local treasure, and to enable Marty and Sas to continue to provide this service for the local community, St. Modwen is pledging £1,500 which can then be spent on upgrading their computer equipment and other software which will allow them to grow with the times and continually improve their offering. We wish B31 all the best in its latest venture and look forward to working with Marty and Sas as our investment into Longbridge continues.”
We would like to sincerely thank St Modwen for their support!
Individuals, businesses and organisations who would like to support the growth of B31 Voices can pledge to the Crowdfunder at www.crowdfunder.co.uk/b31voices Advertising reward packages are available for businesses. Pledges can be made until 1pm on Tuesday 8th December
