We're still collecting donations

On the 29th December 2021 we'd raised £22,117 with 130 supporters in 42 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

Continuing to build on and deliver our services over the coming year needs staff time and ongoing resources for food, crafts and activities. 

The more we can raise, the more people we can help.

Sharing meals, learning new skills and enjoying social time, our aim is to achieve laughter and smiles and a sense of belonging.

We need your help to create a safe space for people to reconnect and rebuild.

What will the funds buy?

  • Staff time to provide support
  • Materials for creative workshops
  • Fold-away tables
  • Comfy chairs
  • New crockery and cutlery
  • Sound system
  • Smart screen
  • Bean bags
  • Gym mats
  • Board games
  • Coffee machine

While we are extremely grateful for all the wonderful gifts we receive and pass on to our service users, in this environment we want to ensure people feel valued and respected by providing good quality, matching sets.  We are therefore unable to accept individual donations of items and are asking for financial donations only.  If your organisation is able to donate a new, full set of the above items, please contact [email protected] to discuss the possibility of accepting your gift.
