Community Legends

Crowdfunder and Legal & General have joined forces to find and fund amazing projects that are amplifying life for those aged 55 and over. 

We searched far and wide for social enterprises, community groups, businesses and ideas that are committed to supporting the variation and adventure of life for those aged 55 and over.

With up to £5,000 each of extra funding up for grabs from L&G towards different organisations that benefit these legends in our communities, it's needless to say that the level of response was high. 

To fit the bill, the project needed to either...

  • Be led by someone over the age of 55
  • Impact life for those aged 55 years old and over

The aim of the game now for the winning ideas is to crowdfund as much as possible, unlocking more of their allocated £5,000 each step of the way. 

The fund is now closed, no further applications will be accepted. Check out the projects involved below.
