OUR PURPOSE

Our Purpose

At PLATF9RM, the core of our ethos is community, not just the incredible, supportive membership but the wider Brighton & Hove community.

We love the city we live in, and want to give back when we can to show our appreciation to this place we call home.

Here’s what we’re up to.

CHARITY

We fundraise year-round for our charity partner; The Clocktower Sanctuary and also support a number of other charities across the year.

Charity

THE CLoCK ToWER SANCTUARY

The Clocktower Sanctuary is our chosen charity of 2023, and we will be fundraising a total of £9,000 to support the amazing support work they do for 16-25-year-olds who are homeless or insecurely housed.

The Clocktower Sanctuary are the only day centre for young people experiencing homelessness, giving dignity and opportunity to those who need it. We visited their day centre to have a chat about the crucial support and services they offer for young people in Brighton & Hove. Tap here to see a video from our recent visit.

As part of our involvement we donated £1250.97 in event space hire and staffing costs as well as £250 direct donations from ticket sales.
