Every month, the LAM donates a portion of the money taken on the door to causes that benefit the community. We also give the opportunity each month for a cause to raise money using a raffle, with prizes donated by some of the traders that attend. Lastly, we offer the opportunity for a month’s cause to staff the cloakroom, and take the proceeds.
To Date we have raised over £20,000 for scene based causes.
Some of the Charities and Communities supported to date include:
- Feminists Against Censorship
- Sexual Freedom Coalition
- The Chesterfield Conclave
- SM Gays
- SM Dykes
- The Spanner Trust
- Preaching to the Perverted
- The British Heart Foundation
- Help For Heroes
- Crisis at Christmas
In addition to this we have invested money via our Kink Development Grants in individuals who have needed help in realising their dreams.
Kink Development Grants are available to help self development through short courses and career or personal development. They can be used to cover the cost of attending an acknowledged workshop or course offered through a higher education college or professional training body.
The only criteria for applying are that you must be kinky and committed to completing the course or project you are applying to have funded.
