The proven benefits of exercise for physical mental and physical health are widespread. That’s why at the Free Space Project we’ll be putting on our Movement for Mental Health project, starting in 2020, and we need YOUR help!

The Free Space Project  is a charity supporting arts & community initiatives within Kentish Town Health Centre, serving over 28,000 patients and those based within Camden. Our Movement for Mental Health project will be provide free opportunities for teens, adults and the elderly to improve their wellbeing through tailor made exercises.

How are we going to do that? A number of us are taking part in an epic spin-a-thon in partnership with Ride & Raise (June 29th) as well as a 10K run through Kew Gardens on September 14th. We need your help to get us through it and your funds to bring this project to fruition!

The Free Space Project has been running for 10 years now and is an exemplar of integrated care, attached to the James Wigg GP practice. Our charity began with exhibitions exploring health but has now grown organically into providing a whole host of other services for patients and those in the local community: arts workshops, a chronic pain group, a weekly dance for Parkinson’s class, exhibitions, artists in residence, a well-beeing garden, Citizens Advice Bureau and much much more. The charity relies on donations like yours to be able to reach some of the most vulnerable people in need.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
