Proud Trust launch building appeal
The LGBT+ Centre in Manchester is a haven, a safe space and a community for many people, especially those who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans. The building has been here for almost 30 years, offering support to those who need it and is a true part of Manchester’s history and future.
With over 800 people using the centre every month, the building can no longer meet the demands placed on it. We have plans to knock down and rebuild the centre so we can double our reach.
We are very excited to be launching our capital appeal today!
Amelia Lee, Strategic Director for the Proud Trust said: “We are asking our dedicated supporters to show support for this campaign to raise a significant amount over the next three weeks. Just £5 each from 500 supporters would mean we reach our total. By raising this money, we will be able to show capital funders and grant-givers that the LGBT+ centre has a community that cares.”
Support now will mean the LGBT+ community in Manchester will always have a safe place to go.
What you can do:
•DONATE via our appeal page: localgiving.org/rebuildMcrLGBTcentre
•WATCH and SHARE our campaign film and social media posts as widely as you can. The more people you can tell, the quicker we will reach our target. The film will be available on our Local Giving Appeal page from Friday 3rd Feb.
About the Proud Trust
The Proud Trust is a life-saving and life enhancing organisation that helps young people empower themselves to make a positive change for themselves and their communities. A Manchester-based charity, we run a number of youth groups primarily aimed at Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT+) young people aged 12-25 in locations across Greater Manchester.
We provide education and training in schools and youth settings to help reduce homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. We also run campaigns and events, led by young people, to reduce the harmful effects of discrimination and inequality.
