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.
We are hoping to raise money for the Andover Crisis and Support Centre due to the hardship that many have had over the last year and need a place of refuge. We are asking you to donate £5 to get a message and a bauble on the tree that will be located outside St Mary's church Andover. The decoration will be placed on the tree with your own message in memory, love or thanks.
Please leave us the message that you wish after you have donated and if you wish to offer a private message please feel free to e-mail me email@example.com
Christmas Light Turn on: The lights will be turned on between 5-6pm with refreshments available outside in accordance with social distance and all are encouraged
We will also be taking food donations as well for the Andover Food Bank on Saturday 12th December between 12-4 if you wish to provide additional support.
Information on the Andover Crisis and Support Centre:
The uniqueness of the Centre lies in its drop-in facility and the helpline it runs for all members of the community – both men and women. Whether visitors are in need of a quiet moment and a cup of tea or information on issues as wide ranging as homelessness, stress, abuse or sexual health, Centre workers are on hand to lend a listening ear. The Centre strives to offer a supportive environment where people can discover their own strengths and hopefully make positive changes to their lives.
It is not always necessary to leave your home to escape domestic abuse, there is plenty that can be done before hand to provide emotional support and practical advice for women who do not want to leave home. Living in villages can make it difficult to get access to the help and information available at the Centre – so our Rural Support Worker is taking her work out to people who need it. However, please remember if you are in danger of physical harm leaving your home in the short term may be your only option
Children and Young People
Growing up in the midst of domestic violence takes its toll. A Child and Young Person Worker is on hand at the Centre to make their stay as trouble-free and fun as possible, and the work does not stop when they leave move on to their new lives.
