Help us build a much needed Performing Arts and Education Centre for the young people of Alexandra Township

This year we are aiming to raise £10,000 to kick start Gumboots’ most exciting project to date! Gumboots South Africa are building a Youth Centre in Alexandra Township, comprising a Performing Arts facility and an Education space. The land has now been purchased by Gumboots SA and here at Gumboots UK we are committed to raising £10,000 needed to build changing and shower facilities and also lay the foundations for the rehearsal space which will be used by Sigiya Sonke Dance Group who have now been without any proper facilities whatsoever for several years following an arson attack on their previous premises.

In order to reach our fundraising target of £10,000 we need to raise £5,000 from online donations over the period 3rd – 10th December to add to the £2,500 already pledged by our generous donors. This will then be matched by the £2,500 set aside for us by our Big Give Charity Champions. It’s an ambitious target but with your help we know we can do it!
