** UPDATE ** - We had a notification that from 1st April 2017 our office rent would unfortunately be increasing. The monthly rent (£246) was already at the very top end of our budget so we have been looking for alternative offices to rent. We're delighted to tell you that we are staying on the same site but moving over to a slightly less refurbished part. The new place might not look as fancy but is definitely more than suitable for our needs and has plenty of room for storage. We have negotiated the rent at £102 per month which we're delighted with and we hope that you will help us to raise the £1,224 for a year's rent. We really can't do this without you so please spare a few pounds if you can.
TeenVGN has been running for five years, completely voluntarily and 100% not-for-profit! For the first four years the whole organisation was run from our home, a terraced house in the Welsh valleys complete with four rescued cats & a dog too!
It has always been our dream to have our own TeenVGN office space, somewhere that we can keep our stock and merchandise, be more professional as an organisation and separate our work life from our home life, and this fundraiser has made that dream a reality. But, without the continued support and donations.. We can't afford to pay the office rent every month!
Here is a breakdown of costs:
TeenVGN has grown rapidly over the last five years, more than we could have ever hoped for and we’ve gone from just a few product samples in the house to a full range of merchandise, everything you could imagine to run a summer camp; freezers, fridges, products, banners, mini-mags and boxes EVERYWHERE!
We realise this is a lot of money and we need your help and generosity to make it happen. We’re not expecting to raise it overnight; this fundraiser will run for the next year. If you can spare just £5, £10, £20 we would be so incredibly grateful. We really believe that in order to step up our game and make TeenVGN and VGN Summer Camp bigger and better, we need to push on, move forwards and continue to progress as an organisation! It's so important to us, and we know how important it is to the young people whose lives we've seen changed.
For every single person that donates and makes this dream a reality, their name will go on a huge poster/plaque and be proudly displayed in the TeenVGN office and every office we ever have. Help us make history. For the animals, always!
