Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Why do I want to keep GWL running? The simple answer is that I would not have become an Archivist without opportunities that came from the Library. On a cold, dark evening in 2006 I arrived at the Library for an open night exploring the Lesbian Archive. From that moment on, I was hooked by archives and the hidden stories they revealed. 

Without GWL, I would not have had the confidence to look for volunteering opportunities. Without GWL, I would not have been able to gain experience to apply for a traineeship in archives. Without GWL, I would not be able to call myself an Archivist. 

I am just one of the many women that GWL has helped over its twenty one years. Help keep the Library running by sponsoring me in the 10K. 

Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Hopefully it inspires you to dig deep and sponsor me!
