    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Exciting times for GRACE! We are due to move to our new premises in a couple of weeks.

    We will use your donations to buy equipment and kit-out our new 'preloved' clothing store ready for business. We plan to support our ongoing but vital operational costs with our new shop and make our charity more self-sustaining. In this way every donation, no matter how small, will go a very long way indeed. Pop inside to grab yourself some fantastic designer or vintage gear as well as some fantastic everyday bargains.

    We are also seeking around £300 as part of this fundraiser to ship essential winter clothing to refugees in Northern Greece. It is cold there! Refugees are living in tents; warm, weatherproof clothing and footwear is in short supply and desperate demand. We have many clothing donations in our store but need funds to ship them to where they are needed most.

    Please help in any way, if you can.

    Thank-you!

      Thank-you to all that donated: we have used the money raised to buy paint for the thirsty interior brick walls and brushes etc; some warehouse racking (shelves) and a new sign for the shop on order: should look something like this. Thank-you for your generosity. We still have a way to go on the project but we are operational for our usual sorting and packing activities. We hope to have our shop 'open' in some form by the end of next week, with our Ebay shop following soon after. We are also planning to offer a variety of community services.
