If everyone could share this link to their friends and family – it would be appreciated. If you sign up to “Give as you live” and choose our charity to support. You can shop as normal at sites such as Amazon, Ebay, Asda, Tesco, Argos etc, and we receive a percentage of your purchase (at no extra cost to you) – this is how much I have raised – “Anna – you’ve raised £34.26!
You’re supporting Ashley’s Birthday Bank – they’ve raised £88.98” Every penny makes a difference to us – £15 will buy nappies and milk for a baby in poverty, £50.00 will buy a microwave for a family in B&B accommodation, and £80 will buy a week’s food shop for a family in poverty. Thank you
We collected full charity collection pots from Molly’s Cafe Broadstone and Arts University Bournemouth yesterday. Raising a massive total of almost £150.00 between them!!!! Thank you so much. If anyone else would like a charity pot at their workplace, please get in touch
Thank you to everyone who came along to our Quiz Night on Saturday. We raised over £800, which is a fantastic effort. It was a really good social night, with a lot of laughs (and additional games of bingo!)
Please sign up and help us raise vital funds. There is no cost to you and you shop online with the suppliers, as you would normally – just log in to Give as you Live and click on the participating companies.
If you would like to hold a Company/School Christmas Jumper Day for us, please get in touch. £20.00 will buy nappies and baby milk for a new mum, £40.00 will buy a microwave for a family in temporary accommodation, £60.00 will buy a week’s shopping for a family in need. Thank you
We are already thinking about Christmas and getting referrals for gifts to go to children who would otherwise wake up without presents. If your employer would consider doing a Christmas Jumper Day for our charity, every penny donated would make their Christmas an extra special one. We can provide posters for you to display. Please message us if you can help. Thank you

Comments received this week – From a Social Worker – “Thank you so much. Without amazing people like you, nothing would ever change”; From a single mum struggling to feed her children; “Hi there, I tried to call you to say thank you for the shopping that we received. I am lost for words at such generosity, I’m having an awful time at the moment, and didn’t realise that there were charities out there such as this. Please let me know if there is anything I can do in return” . This is the reason we are here, and, as supporters of our Charity, you are all part of this. The cost of food is increasing all the time – we average £70 per food shop and in the last 11 days have provided 6. If you can support us at your place of work (with a collection tin or charity event), or could sponsor our charity for a minimal monthly donation, please get in touch. Thank you xxx
We have 6 new charity pots ready to go to their new collection points. If you/your employer could have a charity pot where you work, that would be amazing. Every donation really does help – £20 will buy nappies and baby milk for a new mum, £40.00 will buy a microwave for a family in temporary accommodation; and £70.00 will pay for a food shop for a family of 4. We are all volunteers, and every penny/item donated goes directly to the local families in need
