Celebrating Gumtree’s local community winners

Monday 8 April 2019, by

Here at Gumtree, we like nothing better than neighbours clubbing together to make their community a better place for all.

That’s why we teamed up with Heart FM to give local groups and clubs the chance to win cash for their community. We’re proud to announce that 25 deserving community groups have now received their prize! Here are a few of our brilliant winners:

Gary in the South West told us of a hospice in his neighbourhood whose honesty charity boxes needed repair, so his donation will go The Children’s South West Hospice so they can collect all the future funds they deserve.

Craig from the North East won in aid of the kick-ass Durham Karate Academy, who train up everyone from 5 year olds to 70 year olds in the art of Shotokan Karate.

Kirsty from Essex’s win will go to Brentwood Town Ladies football club, who’ll now be trained up and kitted out for all their upcoming matches.

And Emily in London told us that Twickenham School were eager to introduce their kids to the joys of gardening, so her donation has gone towards a gardening community project.

Thank you for all of your lovely entries – they put smiles on our faces and filled us with the warmth of community spirit. Stay tuned on our social channels to find out more from our local winners – we can’t wait to share how they’re making the neighbourhood good.

From Gumtree, your local buying and selling community 💚
