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.


Coventry Open Christmas is a voluntary organisation managed by a group of volunteers. We provide shelter and food to the homeless and lonely over the Christmas holiday.

The shelter is held at Queens Road Baptist Church and we have been helping the homeless and lonely for 27 years and we hope to make it an extra special year this year. We will again be open for 24 hours a day across Christmas week. This is a great benefit to our guests, especially given the low temperatures of the last few winters. As you may appreciate, this requires extra resources to make this happen; primarily we need additional volunteers but also donations of cash, food, bedding and clothes. If you, or anyone you know, would like to help us to make a difference this Christmas then please get in touch.

We are raising money to help us be able to afford, and continue to afford, to help those in need over Christmas and throughout the year at our Saturday Grub n Gab Club. This year we also did our first 'pop up' shelter during the weekend of the Beast from the East and this meant we needed additional help, financially and with volunteers.
