About the project
A Community Interest Events Company in Carlisle
Gig2give Events is a Community Interest Company. Our mission is to use the medium of Art and Entertainment and Sport to:
- Raise awareness of, and support families effected by Muscular Dystrophy and Strokes.
- Raise money to start a charity for supporting victims and families affected by these terrible diseases.
- Encourage community arts, music and sport culture in and around Carlisle
We will be organising a variety of events across Carlisle and Cumbria. These will initially be live music events, later we will expand to become inclusive community events that incorporate and celebrate a variety of arts (through our art gallery), entertainment and sports.
The aim of the Crowd Funder is to be able to provide a facility for disabled to come and enjoy our Gallery and offer other sevices and support
