Weʼve raised £95 to help provide hot meals for families who can’t afford to themselves
- Funded on Thursday, 30th November 2017
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.
We are currently doing NCS (national citizen service) and are working with a charity called ‘the vineyard charity‘, this is a bit about the charity:
For the thirteen weeks of school holidays this year, many pupils in the UK will not eat a hot meal each day. At school more than 1.2 million pupils who may otherwise go without are eligible to receive free school meals. Outside of term time though, free school meals are not available and many pupils are left without regular hot food.
We believe that every child deserves to eat a cooked meal every day.
This is where MakeLunch comes in. During school holidays, our network of churches and community groups open Lunch Kitchens across the UK to provide free, healthy, cooked food for pupils who usually receive free school meals.
1 in 4 children in the UK are considered to be in poverty.
We are hoping to get donations for the charity so they are able to provide meals for the families. 1 meal roughly costs around 75p, imagine how many children in need you could feed just by donating some money for the children so they can eat a hot meal. For more about the charity, click here :
