    Weʼve raised £1,450 to Raise Funds for Bexley Women’s Aid

    Funded on Tuesday, 15th September 2020

    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.


    The Bexley Branch of the Women's Equality Party know that lockdown has been a difficult and worrying time for everyone – but particularly so for women and children living with abuse.

    Women's Refuges have always been underfunded and austerity has cut their funding further, so that now under lockdown, when the need for them has risen, our help is more vital than ever. That's why Women's Equality Bexley are organising an Online Yogathon in aid of our local Bexley Women's Aid.

    Our branch member Clair Yates is a yoga teacher, teaching yoga in the local community. On 20th June 2020, from 10 am to 11.15 am , she will be leading an Online Accessible Yogathon to raise money for Bexley Women's Aid.

    You may have heard of a Yogathon before, most commonly they are events where yogis come together to practice sun salutes or similar sequences to raise funds for a good cause.

    This Yogathon will be accessible, meaning you don't have to have any particular athletic ability to take part. Clair will be demonstrating various example sequences, including chair sun salutes. You could follow along with her, modify or use a sequence of your own.

    Though we may be making different shapes, for an hour we will be moving and breathing together. You could choose to salute the sun, salute the moon, use chair variations, in fact, any variation of any yoga salute will be very much welcomed.

    Following an hour of moving sequences, Clair will lead us through a balancing breath practice to set you up for the rest of your weekend.

    The details are:

    Day: Saturday 20th June 2020

    Time: 10 – 11.15 am

    Where: Take part online - please click on this link: RSVP for Yogathon , if you RSVP to join, a link for the event will be emailed to you during the week before the 20th.

    - We are asking everyone who takes part to donate a minimum of £10 - if you don't have £10 you could ask someone to sponsor you.

    - If you are able to give more, please do.

    - If you are able to get sponsorship to raise more, please do.

    Women and children living in fear of domestic abuse need our help. Many thanks for your support.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
