Local (Crawley) people WANT to support local businesses, charities and initiatives now more than ever, but often don't know how to go about it - so it's up to the people who run those organisations to let them know how, and Support Crawley is a means to do that. Jim Bolt from Nettl of Crawley who has set up Support Crawley says; "I'm trying to encourage the businesses who add themselves to the site to think of specific ways in which they can support others and can themselves be supported - not necessarily just with people buying stuff - it might be posting an online review, a referral or even just browsing through their website. There is also a page which encourages people to donate the money they would normally spend on their commute to a local charity. I'm trying to keep the organisations featured local to the Crawley area to maintain a community spirit and I'm running the site free of charge and covering all the costs involved myself - it's just my way of doing my bit (basically, I was feeling a bit useless and wanted to do something to help others)."
