GUS Launches New Free Text Message Service to Raise Funds

The Gambia United Society will be amongst the first charities in the country to use its own, unique personalised text code, TGUS13, to raise funds using JustTextGiving by Vodafone.This is a brand new, free service for charities, that has no set up or fundraising costs for charities, no network charges for people making donations and every penny donated goes to charity. Gift Aid can also be added to donations.

From today, supporters of Gambia United Society can make donations of up to £10 by texting TGUS13 and either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 to 70070 to make their donation. The text message is free and all of the donation will be passed to GUS for charity work .

Lamin SM Jaiteh of GUS said: “This is a wonderful way for us to raise money as it’s speedy, simple and spontaneous. Most people have a mobile phone these days so we expect this to be very popular with our supporters.”

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.

Repartriation Fund

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 .
