£170raised of £200 target by 10 supporters

    Weʼve raised £170 to fill backpacks with winter essentials to give to the homeless.

    Funded on Thursday, 29th December 2016

    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.


    There are so many homeless people living in our towns that we don't even know about. They walk amongst us everyday unseen and unheard, all with different backgrounds and sad stories to tell.
    In the winter months their situatiions worsen because of the declining weather.

    I want to make a difference to those in desperate need by offering as many homeless people a rucksack filled with winter essentials as possible.
    The rucksacks will be purchased by my own company Corinne's Cake Creations and supplied at a discounted rate by M &J luggage.
    The idea of a rucksack is it can be attached to a persons back whilst walking or resting so have less chance of it being stolen.
    The rucksacks will be filled with socks/gloves/toiletries/water/snacks/postcard and stamp etc etc which is what all monies from here will go towards purchasing as well as direct donations of items from the public
    These bags will then be packed and taken to the Night Shelter Charity where they will distribute to those most needy over the Christmas period.
    Any amount you can donate will make so much difference and hopefully make someone smile this Christmas time.

    Thank You

      Your money has just allowed me to purchase 10 new sleeping bags for the rucksacks and 16 new pillows for use in the shelter. The remaining amount will be used to purchase any items we are short of and blankets. Thank You, you've made such a difference! Merry Christmas Corinne x

      Good on you for doing this. I was going to donate food for the homeless to the Savation Army this year but came across this, which is also a good idea. Are you collecting second hand coats too?
