Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help bring the homeless warmth and comfort this winter

Buckhurst Hill, Essex, UK

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Academy Heating Ltd & Friends are looking to set up a charity fundraising page to help keep the homeless warm and as comfortable as possible in their time of hardship and need.

This article highlights only Essex, but we all know it is massively widespread throughout the UK.

Our mission statement is "helping to keep everyone warm this winter" As a heating company we do this on a day to day basis in people's homes, so we was thinking, it doesn't have to stop there! How can we help them that do not have the option of shutting the door at night on the cold outside???....

So we have asked around and got a few good ideas, Blankets, Thermal underwear, Thermos cups, Socks, Hats, gloves and scarfs... Please feel free to add your suggestion.

We are hoping to rise enough money to buy a good selection of winter warmers to hand out over the Christmas period and in the coldest months of Jan & Feb. We are going to set a Just give page AND Facebook page up for anyone who wants to get involved and donate their time, resource or a few pounds every little bit will help.

As I said before if anyone would like to help us with this please just let me know. I will keep you posted with all our progress and the latest news on this as things start gathering pace.

Thank you for reading,

Clare Austin
