You Choose – RASAG!!

27 Sep

The event was at the Quaker meeting house

RASAG were very happy and excited to come first at the You Choose funding event organised by the Central Community Assembly on 25th September.  It was our first time competing live for funding and we all felt a bit nervous.  It was also unfortunate that our name appeared wrong on the info sheet and voting form, but we made sure to point that out to voters!  We opened our bid with an impromptu RASAG song from Goran, and we filled the rest of our three minutes with with me talking about what RASAG has done so far and Firas expounding the impact the group has had on his life – the audience must have enjoyed it because there were only a few voters who didn’t give us one of their 8 votes! 

The £1000 kindly awarded to us by the Community Assembly will be used to devlop the RASAG identity including membership ID cards, supporters cards and a database to record those working with us, a web domain to start developing a website, and of course, a giant party to launch ourselves to service providers and communities throughout central Sheffield – watch this space for your invite!
