Over the 6th to 7th of November, donations to Future Youth Zone’s Crowdfunder will be doubled thanks to a generous pledge from their Patron, Barry Hearn OBE.
Barry’s match funding will go towards giving young people a free hot meal over the winter months. This comes at a time that energy bills and cost of living soars, and many more young people and families are expected to need support.
The crowdfunder will bring together the three London OnSide Youth Zones to raise much needed funds over a 36-hour period. Money raised will ensure their doors stay open seven days a week, 52 weeks a year to give young people somewhere safe and inspiring to spend their free time.
For Future’s crowdfunder to reach its target, they need your help to be champions! It’s really simple and you can fundraise from your sofa by sending out a donation link to your friends and family – SIGN UP HERE
Gavin Evans, CEO, of Future Youth Zone, said: “Barry has been a fantastic support to Future Youth Zone, and an inspiration to local young people that through hard work they can achieve anything. Please join our Crowdfunder and support in any small way you can so that together we can double your donations and provide a safe space and hot meals for young people this winter and beyond.”
