RAFT's Roof Repairs - keep us dry this winter!

How amazing... our appeal is now over funded!!


We are so touched at just how much the public have got behind our roof appeal. To be over funded is just incredible. A massive thank you to everyone who has contributed. The extra funding means we can start working towards removing a flue which caused the leak in the first place.

Fantastic news - well done everyone. Such an innovative way to raise money to fix a roof - you deserve your success!!! Here's to a dry winter :)

Our project is fully funded!!!


What a happy Monday this is for RAFT!!! Our roof repair is now fully funded which is just brilliant.... the support and kindness from you all has been amazing and we really appreciate it.

How amazing would it be to be OVER funded!! We could then put these extra funds into removing a redundant flue which caused the leak in the first place. This would cost us an extra £860.


Wow!! A £204 pledged today!!

Who's going to be our 25th pledger?!


With thanks to one of RAFT's ex-employee's we now have 24 backers to this campaign.... it's our 25th anniversary so our 25th pledger would be amazing!!
