Weʼre raising £500 to fund meals for the homeless

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The young people from Brynmawr & CoedCae Interact group have been making food packs every week in all weathers, even over Christmas. During the Christmas holidays, four children went to Newport to meet the charity and some of the homeless people their food parcels were going to. This gave the young people the opportunity to hear first-hand, some of the background and circumstances that led the people they met to become homeless. This had a huge impact on the group who then came back to Brynmawr to educate their friends and the meeting has really given them the incentive to continue with their project. this is their way to try and fundraise to ensure their project continues.

Last Saturday we made 82 sandwich packs, as we had heard the problem had become worse in the area we donate the food too...it all went and was needed and we are so very proud of the efforts we made.

We are Interact Club members, part of the Rotary family. aged 11-17 We try to take action to make a difference but, we also have fun. Importantly we feel what we are doing helps those who needs something as simple as a sandwich - something often we take for granted.
