Voluntary Trust Fund
GUS is run by volunteers who are members and their contributions. Our main source of funds is contribution paid by members. We use organise cultural musical shows by bringing Senegambian artists from Africa over to the UK to promote our culture and raise funds at the same time. We organise annual events such as summer barbeques, family fun days and Eid Parties for fun and income generation as well.
Recently, we have been contacted for help by families whose relatives have died and wish to send the body back home for burial as preferred in The Gambian community. This is inevitable and cost no less than £3000. We've set up a special fund for this to which people can contribute. This would ensure there are available funds for use in the inevitable event of death of a member in the UK and the body is needed to be sent back to the Gambia for burial.
We are appealing to all Gambians and non-Gambians alike to help us raise needed funds in order to meet our charity objectives. We appreciate all contributions our volunteers and sponsors are making geared towards improving the lives of many vulnerable people while promoting Gambian Culture .

Help fund a project
You can donate to a specific project, for example the malaria project and keep up to date with the project development. £5.00 would buy a mosquito net and you could save the life of a child in The Gambia.
You could support us by donating us unwanted computers, books and clothes suitable for reuse. These items are as good as new to the people receiving them and would go a long way in improving their livelihood.
