Sign up to Give as You Live – every penny helps

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

Quiz Night Success

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!)

Would you hold a Christmas Jumper Day for us?

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

Appreciation Makes Us Humble

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

Every Donation Helps

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
