Shakespeare Street Youth Club

Shakespeare Street Youth Club is crowdfunding

raised of £3,000 target by 57 supporters

Weʼre raising £3,000 to help fight the threat of closure of the Shakespeare Street Youth Club and community centre in Maryhill!

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.


We are the Shakespeare Street Youth Club, or more fondly known as 'The Shakey'. We are the oldest youth club in Scotland having been on the go for 97 years, but now we need your help!

Due to a restructuring of local council funding (which we have consistantly received for decades) we now face imminent closure. This would be absolutely heart-breaking for not only the kids who attend our club - but the local community also - who use our building as a hub for clubs, classes, parties and so much more.

We are not asking for much, just enough to buy us enough time to hear back from alternative funding sources.

      I'm in the U.S. but I know how important clubhouses (Recreation Centers in the U.S.) are important to a community. Children need a place to attend. They are the future. No matter where they come from.
