East London: We want to see you move it, MOVE! it

Run. Jump. Skip. Kick. Swim. Karate chop? We’re looking for great ideas to get people active. So whether the frosty weather makes you want to create a temporary ski run or Friday Night Lights has inspired you and your friend to set up your own American Football league – we want to see you move.

MOVE! has been created to support projects in East London which get your community active. Using Spacehive (woo!) they’re offering the use of their spaces, the time of their staff, and match funding up to £70,000 to anyone who has a great idea to get people moving.

If you want to organise a 100 metre sprint on your local high street, revamp a 5-a-side football pitch or run your own sports day (complete with races of the egg and spoon and three-legged variety), then MOVE! can help.

Set up by the GLL Community Foundation, MOVE! aims to help everyone in the community to enjoy sports and physical activities. And getting involved is easy. First, tell us your great idea including how it would work, what’s needed, the timings, the costings, the permissions needed etc. by creating a project on Spacehive and linking it to the MOVE! page. Then show us the power of your idea through your killer crowdfunding campaign.

Aerobics. Basketball. Capoeira. It’s as easy as abc.

About the Author:

From teaching in the Tanzanian mountains to the digital universe of Spacehive, Aaron has stopped off in a few places along the way. After receiving an MA in Publishing from Oxford Brookes University, she worked for big internationals including Oxford University Press and the International Labour Organization, small but interesting types including Pambazuka Press and Internet Retailing Magazine before heading up the award-winning eSeller.net. Looking for her next big adventure she joined Spacehive as their Content Marketing Manager. Here she works the words whether describing the awesome potential of a civic crowdfunded future or outlining the many dazzling features of our grant-making software. She gets to meet the project creators and share their stories as well as working with our partners to ensure they have the material they need to make impact. Outside of work she mentors with The Girls’ Network, solves mysteries and once made jam from the blackberries in her garden of which she is inordinately proud.
