West Sussex County Council's new crowdfunding initiative for community projects will be launched at a special event tomorrow (Wednesday, May 9).

Crowdfunding is a new way of funding community projects that have launched in West Sussex. Known as West Sussex Crowd, the county council's platform will enable groups to raise funds and gather support.

A launch event for Worthing and Adur will take place between 5.30pm and 7pm at St Paul's, in Chapel Road, Worthing.

Debbie Kennard, cabinet member for safer, stronger communities, said: "This is set to be an absolutely fantastic event and is the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in becoming part of the West Sussex Crowd to fund out more."
