The Story

TeenVGN has been running for five years, completely voluntarily and 100% not-for-profit! For the first four years the whole organisation was run from our home, a terraced house in the Welsh valleys complete with four rescued cats & a dog too!

It has always been our dream to have our own TeenVGN office space, somewhere that we can keep our stock and merchandise, be more professional as an organisation and separate our work life from our home life, and this fundraiser has made that dream a reality. But, without the continued support and donations.. We can't afford to pay the office rent every month!

TeenVGN has grown rapidly over the last five years, more than we could have ever hoped for and we’ve gone from just a few product samples in the house to a full range of merchandise, everything you could imagine to run a summer camp; freezers, fridges, products, banners, mini-mags and boxes EVERYWHERE!

Luckily we live in South Wales so in comparison to other places, we think the rent is quite reasonable and we know with the generous donations from our supporters (some of which have been there since day one) we can raise enough to secure us this office space.

Here is a breakdown of costs:

  • Rent (per month): £85 + VAT = £102
  • Total rent per year: £1,224

We realise this is a lot of money and we need your help and generosity to make it happen. We’re not expecting to raise it overnight; this fundraiser will run for the next year. If you can spare just £5, £10, £20 we would be so incredibly grateful. We really believe that in order to step up our game and make TeenVGN and VGN Summer Camp bigger and better, we need to push on, move forwards and continue to progress as an organisation! It's so important to us, and we know how important it is to the young people whose lives we've seen changed.

For every single person that donates and makes this dream a reality, their name will go on a huge poster/plaque and be proudly displayed in the TeenVGN office and every office we ever have. Help us make history. For the animals, always!

The TeenVGN team will also be taking part in various challenges and fundraisers, so keep an eye on our updates to find out what we're up to and please sponsor us by donating on this page.

Hey everyone! We had a notification that from 1st April 2017 our office rent would unfortunately be increasing. The monthly rent (£246) was already at the very top end of our budget so we have been looking for alternative offices to rent. We're delighted to tell you that we are staying on the same site but moving over to a slightly less refurbished part. The new place might not look as fancy but is definitely more than suitable for our needs and has plenty of room for storage. We have negotiated the rent at £102 per month which we're delighted with and we hope that you will help us to raise the £1,224 for a year's rent. We really can't do this without you so please spare a few pounds if you can. Thank you, The TeenVGN Team :)

Sorry we haven't updated in a while we've been busy with lots of amazing things for TeenVGN including another sell-out camp in 2016 and an announcement for a 2017 camp. We still desperately need to raise funds for the TeenVGN office to keep all our camp equipment and materials, merchandise and more so three of the TeenVGN Team (Kylie, Laura & Anna) have decided to take on an Epic 5K Inflatable Run to raise some much needed funds. This may sound fun, or even bouncy.. But it wont be easy. Follow our journey as we attempt to get fit for the run and please spare some change and sponsor us (if you can) so we can continue doing what we're doing by running TeenVGN for the compassionate young people who need it! Happy New Year! x

Another update... YES IT HAPPENED THAT QUICKLY! Thanks to Kat & Neil for helping us raise the £96 that means we can MOVE IN TO THE TEENVGN OFFICE! So, Admin Fee = RAISED. Service Charge = RAISED. First Months Rent = RAISED.

Our mission will now be to raise the £246 rent per month. Something we'll have to stay on top of and raise in advance. We'll have some awesome vegan giveaways and fundraisers the TeenVGN team will be taking part in to encourage you to sponsor us. For now, just - Thank you, thank you, thank you! We're hoping to start moving our stuff into the Office on Monday 29th Feb!
