Weʼre raising £200 to help fund a 24 hour Drop In Centre for the Homeless in Leicester via Hope For The Future 24/7
- Leicester, UK
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.
For some people living on the streets is the norm and their needs are so complex they struggle to get into or are reluctant to make us of the hostel facilities available.
We are painfully aware that these people are the ones who need as much help as possible and the Hope For The Future drop in centre aims to offer wrap around support including 24 hour toilet and shower facilities, somewhere they can come for minor first aid, somewhere to get some hot water for food or drinks and somewhere to feel safe.
To open this centre we need to find the first year's rent and conversion fees and we need your help to do this.
I am instrumental in the battle to get the centre open and Richard is backing me 100% which is why we have decided to try and raise funds via the "Race at your Pace" cycle challenge for June.
We have set ourselves a target of riding at least 100 miles each through June and a target of at least £1 per mile each. If you can help keep us inspired by donating we would be extremely grateful and it would go a way towards helping us realise the ambition to open the drop in centre.

About the fundraiser
I am Georgie and I ignored a homeless gent who responded by thanking me and wished me a good evening. I felt ashamed and went back to chat to him. Since then I have been doing everything I can to make the lives of all homeless people a little easier. Please help me on my journey.
