Since 2011 I have been a volunteer at The GAP Youth Club, supporting LGBTQ+ young people and helping to provide a youth service they feel welcome and free to be themselves in. As many of you may know, this work is something I am incredibly passionate about and I continue to advocate and campaign for the rights of LGBTQ+ young people.
5 years later I am still working at The GAP Youth Club, now run by Free2B Alliance, a Community Interest Company, who are now developing a range of services to support LGBTQ+ young people and their families. As a Community Interest Company, Free2B Alliance rely on fundraising to run its services.
Keen to make a difference, I will be running a 6 mile run, 1 mile for each year The GAP has been open, to fundraise for Free2b Alliance. To make this even more special, Free2b have a current offer of Match Funding anything fundraised up to £5000. This offer runs out at the end of October so to make the most of this, I will be running the Richmond Riverside 10km Run on Saturday 22nd October.
So please, donate anything you can, the work that Free2b Alliance do makes a huge different to LGBTQ+ young people and their families. The more we fundraise the more Free2b can develop its services and offer more support to more young people!
