A football fanzine for Clapton FC that was launched at the end of the 2014/15 season. The first issue was a special Pink Menace edition that was produced in conjunction with the Football vs Homophobia events in March 2015. The first issue proper was printed just in time for the last home match of the season, because we’re like that.
What we’re doing
RM was set up primarily to try and help the community and charities of Forest Gate. Any profits made from sales of the zine will be donated or put straight back in to the local area. So far we have raised money for Aston Mansfield’s LGBT support group Paris and Newham Action Against Domestic Violence (NAADV). Every new issue will raise money for a different cause.
Our aim for the zine is for it to be affordable, informative and (sometimes) entertaining. We will always aim for it to be just a quid to buy so that everyone can enjoy what we put into it.
We are hoping that RM will grow into more than just a zine, we will hope to set up some events for Clapton fans to take part in and raise money for the local area.
