Weʼre raising £1,000 to raise funds for 0161 Community Gym - Kids training and fitness equipment
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
0161 community gym is working across Manchester to improve fitness, teach people new skills and give out a good working knowledge of health and nutrition. The gym was started by local people and is committed to building strong, unified working class communities across Manchester. We stand united, we will not let hate and racism divide us.
We are growing all the time! 0161 Community Gym have started giving free fighting classes for kids and families in local libraries. As we continue to program more events and classes across Greater Manchester, we need funds to continue to make our activities accessible to everyone - 0161 never profits, we want things to be free or as cheap as possible so everyone can get involved.
The classes so far have been proper magic ! There's a mix of genders, races and ages - everyone is welcome. Free family friendly activities can be hard to find but kids really benefit from the regular exercise.
Investing in working class communities, including youth and family endeavours, is just as important as ever but without money we cannot keep building. We need equipment for the classes as they get bigger and bigger - we don't want anyone to go without. This is why we have decided to set up a crowd funder here.
Any money raised will go towards kids boxing gloves, fitness and training equipment. The state has cut support for libraries and forgets our communities, so we need to do this ourselves. Nobody at 0161 gets paid a salary and we are not supported by the state or any other funder.
This equipment will make sure we continue our activities and continue to build working class unity across Greater Manchester!
