Thanks to everyone’s generosity in 2018 we have exceeded our fundraising goal of £5000 for the year – reaching an impressive £5968 by the end of December.

We are particularly grateful to those who bought tickets in our Christmas Raffle as this raised over £1,150, to those who bought our Christmas Cards raising £178 and to those who contributed to our bag packing collection at Waitrose 2 days before Christmas where £600 was raised. Thank you.

With rising costs and the uncertainty around Brexit this year we are raising our hopes for 2019 and would like to ask for your support to reach a fundraising goal of £6,000 this year. This will help keep our free service running for anyone who needs it into the years to come.

Thank you for your support.
