DRAGONFLY YOGA SYDENHAM CAMPAIGN - 7 days left

Post by Dragonfly-yoga » 8 Apr 2019 10:09

Dear Sydenham Locals,

7 days LEFT!! ENTER NOW! https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/dragonfly ... TrackStars

I want to thank you personally for your encouragement for the new 2 storey https://www.dragonfly-yoga.org Yoga Studio on SYDENHAM HIGH STREET/. All profits go towards GMAX Trackstars Charity helping our youthful community!

www.dragonfly-yoga.org


We are however compelled to try and crowdfund (see link) as a shortage of £30k has slowed our re-fit activity. We have only 7 days left and have only just raised over £1,500. I was wondering if you would kindly be interested in making a small financial donation as well just to boost our target! We would like to offer you advertisement and marketing for your company and will promote you all over our social media platforms if you are happy to agree? We can also discuss some special bonus's for your company with your donation? Alternatively, if you enter our raffle on the crowdfunding link (above) you have the chance of winning some amazing prizes!

Please View our Campaign video https://youtu.be/h1yh7gB5rXg

We have decided to appeal to our community AND corporate supporters to see if they are willing to make a capital donation to get us across the line. Any donation little or large would be deeply appreciated.


We can no longer wait for the government to stop talking and take action on our disadvantaged youths... crime is on the rise - GMAX gives children a safe space for sport and fun.

WHY AM I TELLING YOU THIS?
Opening the summit on Monday, the Prime Minister said tackling anti-social behaviour is a "priority" for ministers. She assembled more than 100 experts to explore the scope and impact of new ideas while kick-starting a further programme of action.

I am very frustrated with the government that all over again it’s a case of “when all is said and done, more is said than done”.

Gmax has determinedly been active like so many other community organisations, delivering sports programs which has proven evidence-based data that shows a correlation in the positive impact sports has on youth as a divertive mechanism away from anti-social behaviour.

Due to the government funding cuts we have taken innovative steps to become an independent agency by developing a business model for our charity that will create funding sustainability to continue our program delivery without concern of funding limitations or total cut from the government year on year.

With your support we have succeeding to see our project of turning a commercial space into a community one come to life.

We have work to do in delivering our Programs:

Playground to Podium
Beyond The Blade
Putting the Great back into GB Athletics
Thank you for your time,
Regards

Also, have you tried applying to the London Community Foundation for funding? “Beyond the Blade” made me think you may be eligible
