Weʼre raising £1,600 to help furnish a two bed flat for a family leaving the women’s refuge or other temporary emergency housing situations.

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.
I believe that everyone should have a bed to sleep on and a place to call home.
As an interior designer and a business owner, I am able to buy furniture at a discounted rate and I want to use this ability to help furnish homes for people who are moving on from emergency housing.
Please help me to provide these families with basic essentials - it’s not their fault that they find themselves in this situation and there’s usually always children involved.
I'm not making any money from this for myself, I just know I can help in this situation and I don't want to stand by and do nothing.
I have worked out that I will need £1600 to furnish a two bed flat with the following basic items:
Cabin bed including drawers, desk and shelves. Mattress. Wardrobe.
Wardrobe. Chest of drawers. Bedside cabinet. Double bed.Mattress.
2 seater sofa. Armchair. Table with 4 chairs. TV unit.
This does not include white goods, electricals, bedding, soft furnishings accessories or home decoation - but if you are interested in donating such items then please get in touch.
If you are able to support this cause in any way it would be very very apprecaited.
I will post updates here.
If i can do this for just one family it will make a huge difference.
In the future, I would like to offer this provision for as many families as possible as they leave emergency accomodation and try to rebuild their lives.

About the fundraiser
I would like to help families, who through no fault of their own, have been forced to leave their homes and live in temporary housing. What they once owned has either been destroyed or had to be left behind and now they have nothing. I can help them if you can help me....
