Weʼve raised £530 to support Devizes Opendoors - A local homeless charity
- Funded on Tuesday, 4th February 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On Saturday 11 January 2020, a group of us will be braving a night out under the stars (hopefully stars and not rain or snow!) in support of the charity Devizes Opendoors.
Devizes Opendoors is a charity that has been set up to help people in the Devizes Community Area to find solutions to homelessness; to offer support to local people when they are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless and to benefit local individuals in need, including the marginalised and vulnerable.
Described as inspiring and thought provoking by previous participants, this experience gives a small taste of some of the difficulties that so many people homeless in the country have to deal with - freezing cold, vulnerability and the difficulty of carrying on your day with very little sleep - as well as an opportunity to raise money for a very worthwhile cause.
Opendoors depends entirely on donations - both in terms of money and food, volunteers’ time, clothing, books for example and the sleep out is a key fund raising event in the calendar. In 2019 it raised £1,360 representing 5% of the Opendoors total funding for the year. We are aiming for 10% this year and with your help can make that happen.
