Weʼre raising £200 to support the work of Yorkshire MESMAC and honour World AIDS Day
- Sheffield, UK
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.
On the 1st December 2018 for World Aids Day, two IGR International Gay Rugby Yorkshire teams are coming together to help raise funds for a local sexual health organisation, Yorkshire Mesmac by playing a friendly match of Rugby.
Come down to Hallam Sports Park to watch as Sheffield Vulcans and Leeds Hunters face each other for the first time.
KICK OFF: 2:00pm
A 2 minute silence will be held before the game to remember those who fought battles against HIV and AIDS, and to support those living today.
Throughout the afternoon there will be opportunities to donate in support of World AIDS day so please bring cash. There is a bar and hot food available at the venue.
Following the game, there will be a social organised in Sheffield's LGBT district and City Centre in the evening.

Thanks to your generosity, we are able to donate nearly £150 to two amazing charities. National AIDS Trust celebrated the 30th World Aids Day and it was the biggest ever in terms of support and people engaging with the cause. They work towards removing stigma surrounding HIV and helping those living with HIV and AIDS. Yorkshire MESMAC provides a range of sexual health services across Yorkshire. From testing, to contraception, the charity helps men and women of all backgrounds have safe and happy sexual health and activity.
