raised of £3,000 target by 64 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,130 to Work with those who sleep on the streets of Frome, by establishing a night time place to sleep and continuing to look for local solutions

    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 nonprofit.

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


    Up until this year the nearest Cold Weather shelter has been in Wells some twenty miles away so this shelter in Frome will provide a much needed local service.

    Frome has recently seen an increase in people sleeping outside and the community has come together to find a solution for the Winter. Thirty Eight volunteers have received training and will assist with our evening drop in where those who need it will receive warm clothing, hot food links to referral agencies and if needed a warm safe bed for the night.

    The third night of below zero temperatures can prove fatal for rough sleepers. When this is predicted by the Met office the cold weather shelter in Frome will open.

    Although we are supported by a large team of volunteers, there will be costs involved- we need financial support to have a mobile telephone, admin support, room hires for training, petrol costs, publicity and to provide a 'failproof' system which we hope to take forward next year.
