Weʼre raising £500 to “To bring people in the LGBT+ community, with supported allies to help feel less isolated within Alton and surrounding areas.”
- Alton, Hampshire
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.
Recently a group of individuals connected via Alton News facebook page to come together to support those in our local community who are gay, streight, lesbian, transgender, asexual or confused regarding sexualaloty or gender identity we created a facebook group on the 27 of July. Currently we have 69 members and we hope this will grow. We’ve already help a women to come to terms with her sexuality and with the support of our group shes been able to come out to friends and family.
Following my previous announcement I’ve been doing some research atm we’re classed as a “Unincorporated Association” This means we don’t have to register as a charity until we have an income off £5
Our main goal “To bring people together who are part of the LGBT+ community and feel isolated within Alton and surrounding areas. The charity aims to bring like minded individuals and allies to learn from each others experiences, make friends and even come to grips with who they are as an a person.” Education and promoting understanding is important, specially in a small market town like Alton.
In order to make this a reality we’d like to set up a website where people can hear real experiences, from real people in order to gain understanding and prespsctive. We also want to create a safe space for people to ask questions without the fear of being judged, a subject to hate crime or their personsl mental health. We’d also like to prove info on support that is available localy and within the surrounding areaa.
As well as, a website, we’d like to arrange regular meet ups for those within the community to have a chance to meet likeminded people face-to-face and develop positive, supporting friendships.
i do hope you can support us no matter how small or big, your support will greatly be appreciated.
