by Camel Club in Huddersfield, England, United Kingdom

Hello, this is a message to all you lovely pandemic party people!

Camel Club needs your help!!!

My name is Dave (or Bongo Dave as most people know me)and I’m the owner of Camel Club in Huddersfield. 

We are here to ask for your help in raising some funds through crowdfunding to keep Camel Club alive and afloat until we can re-open!

We haven’t asked for any help up until now because we have managed to survive using our savings and the initial grant given from the government. We also simply didn't know how long this was going to last until recently and now have a clear picture that it won’t be until spring next year until we can open our doors again. However sad this is, it does give us something at least to work towards.

As it stands, it has cost us over £100,000 to stay afloat over the last 6 months and with another 6 months ahead we now need help from your amazing selves!

Unfortunately we didn't qualify for the Arts Council grant which we hoped would be the needed lifeline to help us survive.

Our reduced outgoings are £8000 a month and some businesses we are in contracts with refuse to give any help at this time and are still taking money from us despite us not using their services.

We want to be able to help our staff stay on the furlough scheme and cover our bills until we can open; so here we are, cap in hand, asking for your support.

Camel Club is there for you to continue the party when you aren't ready to go home.We very much want to be there for you when this is all over. I think we all deserve a good night out when 2020 is over, so please help and donate whatever you can to help keep us in business.

Thank you all so much for your years of business and silliness and hopefully together we can all get back on the dance floors of England soon and party like its 2019 again! 

We are an independent family-run nightclub and we care about our customers. We hope you guys care about us too and can help in this crazy time we find ourselves in. Your help will be very much appreciated.

Keep safe, keep smiling, keep dancing and we will see you on the dance floor soon. Lots of love, me ‘Bongo Dave’ and the Camel Club family x
