The Cause is holding a fundraiser event for drug safety and harm reduction charity The Loop this Sunday, 15th August.
Taking place from 1pm until 11pm, the RAVE SAFE event comes after the death on 31st July of a 21-year-old man called Bill, who was taken ill at the club and later passed away in hospital as a result of a suspected drug overdose. Bill’s family have started a fundraiser in his memory, which you can donate to here.
RAVE SAFE comes on The Cause’s first weekend open again since Bill’s death. In a statement shared to social media, the club said: “Sadly tragedies like these have struck venues across the UK since we have all been allowed to re-open. Our team was left absolutely devastated and all our thoughts are with the friends and family. We at The Cause feel it is imperative that as we re-open it is with respect and the full spirit of the project. As such, we will not shy away from what has happened.
