    Funded on Friday, 9th 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.


    Veteran Professional Services U.K. ( David Short Royal Marines)
    Supported by BREAK-POINT "Ollie and Foxy "
    Channel 4 hit series SAS: WHO DARES WINS.

    MISSION: to help the homeless and prevent hunger and waste throughout the UK.
    "Every waterfall starts with a ripple"

    FUNDING: 2 x 24 hrs mobile catering units to "Feed The Need" this will provide 24hr access to warm drink and food free to the homeless with a pay as you feel set up for the general public.

    The intention is to partner with local businesses and Major Supermarkets to take advantage of the 'sell by date" Mandate.

    These mobile units will be run under a mentoring scheme by VPS and the potential beneficial owners for this period will be selected from the homeless community for 2 years then this cycle will be repeated with the objective of moving the people into our "FEED the NEED cafes" to manage on a longer term basis. Our intention is to roll this working model throughout the UK.

    We really believe that this will make a huge difference to the local hungry and homeless people who are largely ignored within our communities.
    The numbers of homeless people are growing everyday.
    We believe that most of us actually do care about the plight of the homeless, however we are lost as to how to help. This is one way we can all show that we do care.

    Any donation is greatfully received and all money will be used to help the homeless and hungry.
    Thank you in advance for any support you can give.

Don't want to give too much away at this stage but it will be in Bournemouth and will include the Beach a Zip Wire and meet and greet with an event in the evening. Thanks to everyone for supporting us.
