If anyone would like to hold a fundraiser in their office/school etc – £120.00 will pay for a single bed, mattress and bedding for a child currently sleeping on the floor, or in a travel cot at 4/5 years old. As you can imagine, a bed makes the world of difference to these children, many of whom have already been through an horrific ordeal. Having a warm, safe place to sleep at night shouldn’t be a luxury, but sadly for some of these families, it is.
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
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.
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
Please take a minute to go on to this link and vote for us as their “Charity of the Year” with JustGiving – thank you!
It is only with your generous help and support that we can continue !

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
