Next month Govan Community Project will host it’s first fundraising event of 2024. Back to the 80’s is a night of live music, dance and a charity raffle to raise vital funds to support refugees in Glasgow.

The event, which will take place at Fairfield Club in Govan on Friday 10 May, is set to feature live music from The Moonlighters who will perform classic hits from the 80’s. The evening will continue with a buffet and a DJ.

Megan Johnson, GCP Fundraiser, said: “Community support is essential to our work. Every penny we raise helps us to support people who have very little or, in some cases, face destitution and homelessness. This event will be a fun space for us to come together in community spirit as well as for some dancing, food and an opportunity to win some wonderful raffle prizes, which have been kindly donated by businesses in our community.”

Tickets are £10, there is also a £15 option which includes a donation. Pay-it-forward option is also available to buy a ticket for someone on low/no income.

Govan Community Project is creating a brand new team of community fundraising volunteers. Would you like to help make a difference to the lives of refugees and people seeking asylum in Glasgow?

From holding events, taking on challenges or organising bake sales, volunteers will be at the heart of the community, helping to raise much needed funds to the support the work we do.

We are holding an information evening to discuss the roles, and provide more information about the training and support available for volunteers.

If you have some time to spare and want to make a difference, get involved!

The community fundraising information session will take place on Wednesday 11 October from 6pm-7pm at the GCP office in Govan.
