We're still collecting donations

On the 10th May 2020 we'd raised £1,115 with 40 supporters in 30 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

Demand is very high and exceeded 1000 bags. I still want to supply key workers like the school teachers and reward a few villages who missed out for one reason or another.

"We will meet again" Goody Bags - delivering over 1000 bags to households and key workers in Wensleydale, Coverdale, Bishopdale and Upper and Lower Swaledale.

I do a lot of local fund raising and have raise £3500 in 12 months by giving my hens eggs away in return for donations. 

Founder of a new App launching later this year called Group Hug. Its a social enterprise and powered by volunteers and here to free your mind.

My aim is to get deep inside the community and give people hope, enlightenment and someting to look forward.

Identification and distribution of the "We will meet again" Goody Bags will utilise the local network of community hubs.

I started with 250, demand soon grew to 500, now it 750.

I financed the first 250 bags at a cost of around £500, I now need to raise a further £1600 to make the numbers 1000.

I've raised £800 already from local businesses and now need to boost this up to £1600.

The aim is to get into the community fast, these people need help and they need it now.

What will they get?

The list is growing by the day, however this is what we aim for now.
