    Funded on Friday, 6th May 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Happy New Year!

    So, I decided to set myself a challenge by walking 1000km in the first 100 days of 2022 to raise much needed money for The CTiW Haven Project in Whitstable. This will be quite a challenge, for those of you that count your steps every day like me, it will be almost 1.5 million steps by the time I’m done! The final day of the 100 day challenge will also be my birthday and the biggest gift for me will be handing over the money raised during this challenge.

    The mission of the Haven Project is the prevention or relief of financial hardship among homeless people in the Whitstable and surrounding area by the provision of a drop-in service, clothing, bedding, food and other items. They also provide information and assistance to help in accessing other support services. The charity was formed in 2016 by Churches Together in Whitstable and is supported by a number of dedicated volunteers. You can have a look at the website here Registered Charity No. 1177700

    Please help me in raising funds for this wonderful local charity and help homeless and vulnerable people live a better life.

    Thanks you!

      Day 100 - mission accomplished! I set off 100 days ago to walk 1000km for the Haven Project, I have completed the challenge and reached 1185km as of this afternoon and raised an amazing £2700 - thank you so much to everyone that has kindly donated. I will leave the Just Giving page open for another week for anyone that still wishes to donate. Maybe we can even reach £3000 :-) Today is my birthday, so to have completed the challenge today is also very special. Thanks all for your support, you have all been amazing, now where is that prosecco!

      Day 86 Update Today, I crossed my 1000km target, 2 weeks early!! Despite this, I intend to continue for the full 100 days in the hope hat I can raise a bit more money for the Haven Project If you have been meaning to donate but just haven’t got around to it yet, you still have time. Haven provides invaluable assistance to the homeless and vulnerable in and around Whitstable, providing showers, laundry facilities, hot food and food parcels plus a warm place to be where someone will listen and provide advice on where to access vital services
