    Story

    I am trying to raise funds to be able to buy a really good sized shed to store donations very kindly donated from our amazing community. We have women of different ages and various sized clothing and shoes and the same for all the children that very sadly end up with us.

    My dream is to do as much as I can to help these victims of abuse and help by being positive and giving giving them a focus on life. I don't want to ever have to turn any donations away because we really can not afford to with the flow of residents that pass through our care.

    I need to be able to buy a good sized shed so I can get it fitted out with storage which we can organise the clothing and shoes and other donations in an organised manner so we can get what we need quickly in an emergency rather than having to search frantically through black bags. The transition of the women and children needs to be flowing to help them feel at ease and safe and this storage would mean I can collect a wide range of donations to hopefully get all ages and sizes covered.
