We had a van, a very nice Vauxhall Vivaro that did very well until things started to go wrong with it and unfortunately it we had to get rid of it. It was sad to see it go but economically it didn't make sense to keep it.
However the need for the van still exists as we still needs to move rubbish to the tip, we still need to move furniture around the houses or pickup beds etc etc. Without it the rubbish just gathers and has an adverse effect on our people in recovery and brings down the morale of our residents. The people we work with already have low self-esteem, they already have a lack of self-confidence and after years of being like that we do not want to keep them like that. We put in a massive amount of support and supervision helping the most disadvantaged in our community and this is just one part of it but a very valuable part of someone's recovery. With your help and support we can get a vehicle that is vital to our work helping people get recovery into their lives and being able to sustain that for their future.
We have already raised £2000 towards the van and we think we can get a decent van for around £5000 and this (or more) is what we are asking people to contribute towards.
