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.
With the cold weather now here and a long winter ahead, at Cirencester Signpost we are ensuring that we are doing all we reasonably can to help those sleeping outdoors in our community.
Meals are available at our Monday 'drop in' and Saturday Big Breakfast but we are extending what we provide to our homeless friends to include a meal of home-cooked food every Wednesday evening.
Giving dignity is essential in all we do. We offer shower facilities, toiletries, warm clean clothing, sleeping bags together with practical assistance such as registration with a GP.
We will be putting on a full Christmas meal with all the trimmings exclusively for those sleeping rough.
All of our services are provided by volunteers so we have no salaries to pay, meaning we can maximise the impact of monies raised on those that need it most.
When we are faced with such never ending need, may we never become numb to pain and suffering. Nor lose the wonder of how changing one person's life is enough because one person matters.

I cannot thank all of you enough for your amazing support to raise funds to help those who are homeless. With the extremely cold conditions overnight, it has brought to the fore the difficulties that our homeless friends face. Your funds will not only give them practical support but hope and encouragement that people do care. Bless you all.

About the fundraiser
Cirencester, United Kingdom
One bitterly cold evening, with my husband, we came across a homeless man standing alongside a kitchen extractor vent trying to keep warm. We invited him for a hot meal and a place of refuge. That night we vowed to do all we could to help the homeless as one person matters.
