Weʼre raising £150 to Help Bangor Crisis Response Service Feed our Local Community
- Bangor, County Down
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.
Working Together To Make Lives Better During COVID-19 .
At the start of the current crisis, when we were first forced to close, we cooked all of the food we had left and created 100+ meals that we gave to our local YMCA to distribute. Since then we have looked on helplessly as we have become ever more aware of the desperate need of some in our local community for a decent meal in their week.
Now we and our sister restaurant, The Boat House, are re-opening to offer take-away meals we would like to return to helping the YMCA by providing two meals a week for the most vulnerable in our local community.
We will be encouraging those that take us up on the take-aways to donate what they might have traditionally tipped when eating in the restaurants to this cause instead. We will then match each meal.
A total of £300 raised, together, per week, will help us achieve our aim of providing 60 meals for those being helped by the YMCA Crisis Response Service.
Thanks for your support!

Every week YMCA North Down provides freshly prepared meals & food hampers, collects & delivers prescriptions & grocery shopping, and makes well-being phone calls to 30+ vulnerable individuals who are isolated due to the COVID-19 situation.
NOTE - anything raised beyond £150 target will be passed to the YMCA each week to purchase essential items for food hampers within the Crisis Response Service. Or to create more meals for the YMCA to distribute ... depending on the need notified to us.
