Weʼre raising £3,000 to honour the memory of Nicolette Richardson by raising money to help the lives of local homeless people through the Buses 4 Homeless project.
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.
There are over 300,000 homeless people in the UK, and over 450 homeless related deaths last year. Buses 4 Homeless, have a mission to transform the lives of homeless people. Buses 4 Homeless is a low cost holistic solution to homelessness.
They refurbish decommissioned buses into spaces for Eating, Sleeping, Wellbeing and Learning in order to re-engage homeless people back into the community.
Recently, Nicolette became aware of the important work that Buses 4 Homeless undertake to transform the lives of homeless and vulnerable people, and has worked with the founder to try and help the local homeless in Richmond.
In her memory, we would love to be able to raise enough money to be able to cover the cost of putting someone through the 3 month programme that would:
1) Help Identify and Overcome the issues that lead to them being homeless
2) Teach them Soft and Vocational skills
3) Engage them into Apprenticeships / Further Training
4) Help secure Employment / create Small Businesses
5) Re-engage them back into the community through housing, support and long term mentorship

Just WOW! I am in total awe today. Nicolette was just such an amazing person, who i loved dearly and i'm genuinely lost for words to see how loved she was by others. In what has undoubtedly been the most darkest time for myself, it fills me with immense pride to be able to honour Nicolette in this way. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

About the fundraiser
Nicolette / Austen
Nicolette was recently taken ill suddenly and sadly passed away leaving a hole in all of our hearts. She was an amazing woman, mother, partner, daughter, sister and friend to so many and those that knew her were all truly blessed to have been able to be a part of her life.
