Crowdfunding Campaign for Websters Theatre Glasgow
In 2013 the trustees of Four Acres Charitable Trust, responsible for Cottiers Theatre, took on another important Glasgow landmark, Lansdowne Church on Great Western Road.
Lansdowne is being transformed into Websters Theatre named after stained glass designer Alf Webster whose remarkable windows illustrated here adorn the building.
Websters is a new name for the former Lansdowne Church on Great Western Road Glasgow. The project is to bring it into use as an arts and local community venue.
So we are trying to raise £25,000. If we are successful in doing this we are confident we will be fully operational by April 2014.
To raise the necessary funds we run a crowdfunding campaign through Crowdfunder.co.uk
Crowdfunder is a new web based platform for professionally run charities to raise funds for worthwhile projects.
Here you will find out about our very first crowdfunding campaign ,where we have set a target to raise the extra funds we need. Pledges are taken and rewards are given if we reach the funding target by the due date.
By pledging a contribution, large or small, you can help us reach the target of £25,000 by January 18th 2015.
There will also be a prize draw for picking the most popular picture from this leaflet. Tickets for two to a Burns night celebration at Cottiers to be won. This is a chance for you and your friends to get involved in an exciting new venture in one of Glasgow’s most iconic buildings.
