Have you accessed a Trade service in the past or present? Did the service help, improve or save your life?
Trade Sexual Health is facing the challenge of a future where the services we offer will be put at risk. Perhaps even disappear forever. The truth is that we and everyone we support need your help more than ever.
We rely on the support and generosity of you. Your donations enable us to continue providing information, support and services for our service users to live happy, healthier lives.
All money received helps us reach more of our services users who are in vital need of sex education, a listening ear with our one-to-one support or counselling services, HIV prevention information and testing services and support for those who are under-represented within society.
A financial contribution from you can really make a difference. Whether you choose a one-off donation, a regular monthly donation or want to fundraise for us in a quirky way, we can guarantee every penny will go towards improving the lives of LGB&T communities and other under-represented people across Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland.
Please help us face a challenging future and donate what you can.
There are a number of options available to you when it comes to donating Check them out below.
The fastest and easiest option: If you want to make a one-off donation via credit/debit card, use the PayPal Giving Fund service, where we will receive 100% of your donation.
You can post a cheque payable to Trade Sexual Health to Trade, 2nd Floor, 27 Bowling Green Street, Leicester, LE1 6AS. Alternatively, you can come and drop-in during our opening hours.
Have some spare change after buying some drinks out on the scene that you don't want to weigh you down? We have a number of our red or blue donation tins in a number of community venues across Leicester including Rainbow and Dove, Dover Castle and Helsinki.
We also have 2 donation tins in Splash Spa & Leisure, who very kindly offer all of their customers free self-serve tea and coffee from their tea table for donations to Trade.
We also accept cash donations. Please drop-in to the Trade office during opening hours where a member of staff will be more than happy to help, as well as provide you with a receipt. If you want your cash donation to go to a specific project or group, then please specify this when donating.
