Crowdfunding Campaign

Crowdfunding campaign for a minibus

The Urban Equestrian Academy has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise £8300 for a minibus. We have until February 21st to reach our target.

If you would like to make a donation pledge, please go to:


The Urban Equestrian Academy is a groundbreaking new social enterprise which provides communities socially excluded from the Equestrian industry a direct pathway into this fascinating world.

Our social enterprise aims to open doors that have not been visibly present before in the Equestrian world. Our ethos is focused on widening the participation of those with the least experience in the Equestrian world and also individuals who have the least access to it.

One of the main barriers to accessing equestrianism for these particular groups is cost, transport and accessibility. In crowdfunding for a community minibus, we aim to overcome these particular accessibility barriers and continue to widen the participation in Leicester and Leicestershire by allowing us to provide and expand on our key services and find innovative and new ways to keep our community active and inspired.

To find out more about our crowdfunding campaign please visit

With the community’s support, we can achieve our aim of raising £7000.

Today we are holding a special community meeting that will explain more in-depth our current crowdfunding campaign.

Meeting: Monday 9th October 2017

Venue – The African Caribbean Centre, Maidstone Rd, Leicester LE2 0UA

Time- 6.30pm – 7.30 pm

Novel Writing Workshops


I had a story to tell and by telling it, led me on an inspirational journey. Everybody has a story to tell and my aim is to help you discover yours. My workshops are aimed at people (young and old) who have always dreamt of writing their own novel. I am running several workshops aimed at focusing on various aspects of novel writing. Beginner and intermediate levels focus heavily on key fundamentals. Some aspects of the course run for several weeks. The aim is for you to make a natural progression, embrace your innovation and inspire not just yourself – but others.

Catch me on BBC Radio Leicester on Thursday 10th December at 3pm. I will be with Ben Jackson (Main Show) talking about ‘ My Life, Milestones and Achievements.
