 WHAT IS H&F HIVE AND HOW CAN I TAKE PART?

The H&F Hive is an online crowdfunding platform which brings together local people and resources to make positive changes in their community. If you have a project idea for improving your local area, simply upload it to Spacehive, set your funding target and launch your fundraising campaign to bring your ideas to life!
