The Newquay-based crowdfunding platform, Crowdfunder, has been named on a list of people or projects that are being celebrated for helping change Britain for the better.
The 2014 New Radicals list has been published jointly by the ‘innovation charity’ Nesta, and The Observer newspaper, “to find the top people, projects and organisations offering innovative ways to tackle social challenges”.
More than 1,000 people responded to the open call for nominations, which were assessed by a panel of judges including John Mulholland, The Observer Editor and Peter Holbrook, Chief Executive of Social Enterprise UK.
Crowdfunder MD, Phil Geraghty, said: “The list that Nesta and The Observer has released is truly full of New Radicals, talented doers who make things happen, not for their financial gain, but because society needs change.
“Being named on the list is a massive boost for myself, and the team here at Crowdfunder.”
