Grassroots Jazz Fundraising Campaign


There is currently a campaign running to help struggling grassroots jazz clubs that didn’t qualify for funding in the post pandemic Culture Recovery Fund. It’s a desperate time for UK jazz and we have already seen closures, sometimes of clubs that have been in existence for decades. 
If you would like support this cause then please visit ...

https://www.grassrootsjazz.com 

...where there are a number of fundraising initiatives, including a raffle, a ‘gofundme’ page, a direct PayPal donations link - with an option to opt for ‘gift aid’. The site will also keep you informed of live fundraising events and a list of clubs that have received grants. Your help would be appreciated enormously. Thanks
