Through our charity, the Vortex Foundation, we have set up a Mossman Fund, in memory of Vortex founder, David Mossman. The aim of the fund is to raise funds in order to put the Vortex into a situation that stabilises the situation of the club but also allows it to move forwards, and in keeping with the spirit of positive community that David started.
With no income at present from gigs, we are modifying our fund not just to upgrade our club, but most immediately raise the money to pay our rent, our staff costs and also assist musicians.
So we have put our intentions to improve p.a., lights, furniture etc on hold, and looking how to raise money to keep the doors of the club ready to open at such time as we can. Our next investment will be in equipment to allow us to stream some gigs live from the club as well as put some of our extensive archive online.
