I was given a challenge by www.thelions.org.uk to multiply £20 into as much money as possible for the charity 'Cherished Hearts' in Coventry

by Jonny Gios in Coventry, England, United Kingdom

Cherished hearts was founded with the aim to help vulnerable women and their children, within the city of Coventry.

Cherished hearts offer personal, practical support, ongoing friendship and mentoring, all provided by their wonderful volunteers.

For over 7 years they have encouraged and supported women escaping abuse, domestic violence, addiction, and prostitution.

They exist to give hope to women and children on the margins of society and enable them to begin to walk away from life-controlling situations that keep them in bondage. Cherished Hearts call this JOURNEY TO FREEDOM.

Cherished hearts have the vision to buy a house called the 'House of Hope', where women can join a residential programme, giving the support and tools they need to break free from a destructive cycle of behavior. They are working on an effective model that places this programme firmly at the heart of the local church and community. Thereby enabling the women to access relationships that will continue beyond an 8-month programme. The church they partner with is Mosiac Church, Coventry - https://www.mosaicchurch.co.uk

Cherished Hearts meet weekly in the Hope Centre in Hillfields and offer other activities and course to help build self-esteem and confidence, as well as hosting inspirational speakers.

Please help me raise a target of £1000 for this amazing charity! This money will be used to help the charity provide much needed furniture etc for their vision of a House of Hope in Coventry.

PLEASE PLEASE support if you're able!
