Weʼve raised £453 to ensure the local children's clothes bank can continue to operate & provide a children's Christmas party, free to child foodbank users

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
We are a community group of diverse, local volunteers, currently with no funding stream.
We run Hodge Podge & mishmash, a children's clothes bank based in Liskeard, Cornwall.
We desperately want to continue collecting & redistributing preloved clothes in the community for free & reach other surrounding localities who may need us. We are currently looking at Pop up events in Callington.
We also provide clothes to families in emergency & crisis situations.
We are passionate about supporting our community, to support itself & building positivity & community spirit locally.
As well as the clothes bank we provide free & 'pay as you feel' events open to the whole community. These events allow & encourage the community to come together, without financial barriers.
We are currently planning a not for profit, children's christmas party & hope to offer free entry to children of families who may be accessing the foodbank across the festive period.
26% of Children in South East Cornwall are living in relative poverty & we are passionate to support & empower those children to feel happy & part of a supportive, inclusive community.
We need short term support from the big warm hearted folk of our community, to empower us to deliver long term support to those who may need it now & in the future.
