Funding: The Compot

When we hold events, we often take our collection tins with us to raise money for the local LGBTQ+ community in Cambridgeshire. All the money raised from these collections goes in to The Community Pot (affectionately known as the ComPot) . We use this money exclusively to provide small grants to local  LGBTQ+ groups to help them do great stuff within our community. Previous grants have included such things as:

  • Sheet music for a local LGBTQ+ Choir
  • Funding for a Blues Dance Class
  • Fees for a Lecture as part of LGBTQ+ History Month
  • Support for a local artist to hold an art exhibition

Got an idea for something you would like to do?

Want to start your own LGBTQ+ group and need help paying for a set of flyers? Planning a big meeting and would like to offer refreshments? Thinking of setting up an event for History Month? The ComPot is made for you! Our funds are limited, but they’re available: send us a simple email to [email protected], explaining who you are, what you’d like to do and how we can help – an idea of the costs involved would help, too!
