    Weʼve raised £439 to set up a Gig Buddies in Manchester

    Funded on Saturday, 18th August 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Gig Buddies was created by the punk band Heavy Load. Three members of Heavy Load have learning disabilities and they became increasingly frustrated when their fans had to leave their gigs at 9pm due to support staff working inflexible hours. Gig Buddies was created to allow people with learning disabilities to do what they love and enjoy night life just like everyone else; the organisation matches an individual with learning disabilities to a volunteer with similar music taste so they can go to gigs together. Gig Buddies supports people to be less socially isolated and lead healthier and more fulfilled lives that they’re in control of. Manchester has a vibrant gig culture, so we need a Gig Buddies to help support people with learning disabilities to get involved in our fantastic community of music lovers!

      It is with a heavy heart that I admit I am unable to commit the time to extend the Gig Buddies project to Manchester. Your money will still go to this amazing cause, but unfortunately will not be used to create a new Gig Buddies. If anyone is not okay with this then please message me, but I hope that you are comfortable in the thought that your money is still going to the same cause, just not in Manchester. I hope that one day I will be able to commit to this project, but I do not feel comfortable keeping your money until I know this for sure.
