I’m a Hilly fields local, and work for JustGiving, who you have probably heard of – we’re an online fundraising platform.
I’m also a keen tennis player and regularly use the great free courts that we have on Hilly Fields. Anyone who plays on them, but if so, you’ll know that whilst the courts are great, the nets themselves are terrible and are completely broken and holey:
It’s worth saying that JustGiving Projects is a new tool that we’re launching to help people raise money for local community projects that they really care about (rather than just charities, which is our bread and butter). Given that the tennis court nets were something that I really wanted to get fixed myself, I thought I would set up a page myself and give it a go.
It’s worth pointing out that people just pledge to support a project, so unless the project gets fully funded, then you don’t donate anything!
