The 5,000 challenge

£2,183 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 107 people in 8 months

We are LEADING OUR LIVES. A youth project and Friday night club for young people with speech and communication difficulties based in Hainault, East London.

Our Youth Club is staffed by youth workers, a speech therapist and volunteers (often training to be speech therapists). We offer regular youth club activities such as pool and games; sports activities; drama; art and craft; cooking. We aim to respond to what young people want, and everyone gets a say.

We also run Girl Talk -  a group for older girls to meet up, have fun and develop their social and independence skills.

But it costs us about £10,000 a year to keep the activities going. Right now funds are getting extremely low and we urgently need to fix this.

We are appealing to 5000 people to give us just a minimum of £2 each to help us keep going.

The money you raise for us will go directly into the Charity's bank account to keep the Youth Club running.

Please click the link above and take a look at our website for further details.

You can donate here OR  you can send a txt:  Loly18 £2 to 70070.

Thank You!

Jonathan Hanns, Treasurer for Leading Our Lives Youth Project

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.
