Small change for BIG change in Hull

What could you do with £500 for the community? Probably more than you think. We’re setting heroic Hullensians a challenge. What big change can you make with lots of small change as part of our community crowdfunding initiative?

Ideas can be anything that take place in a public space – from a mural that brightens up a dark alley to an outdoor blackboard for people to share their thoughts to a flashmob that gets everyone moving. Projects don’t have to be big to have a huge impact and we want to see the corners of Hull come to life with cheap and cheerful projects that everyone can enjoy.

I love it! How can I get involved?

Simple! Just upload your idea to #MakeHull on Spacehive and outline what your idea is, how you’ll do it and how much it will cost. The projects with the most local support will get a big pledge from the #MakeHull pioneers to make it happen.

Because every positive change no matter how small helps shape Hull into a city you can be proud to live, work and enjoy. So take our £500 challenge and play your part to #MakeHull. After all, every little helps!*

Some ideas to get you started!

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.
