I am trying to raise money to cater for people who are suffering from homelessness and mental illness who live on the streets. I am aiming to provide hot meals and give out basic living essentials such as toothbrushes, soap, sleeping bags etc to make life easier for the homeless. I want to be able to open and renovate a cafe space for homeless people to enjoy and feel connected. The cafe will aim to make life easier and provide support in any way possible and completely free from discrimination.
I deeply care about this subject as I know just how overlooked the problem is. I see countless homeless people everyday on my travels around Bristol who are very sick and poorly. It's very hard for me to watch these people suffer and just walk by and do nothing. I want to make a big change in the way these people live and be able to create something long lasting and meaningful. I've suffered from homelessness for a short period of time and I know how hard it can be to get help from the system.
Work is commencing now and I'm working to my full potential to reach my goals. I want to make this work , after pricing everything up I also need to make sure that I can afford the rent and give myself time to get the cafe up and running. Once work is completed on the building and the cafe is renovated it will be good to open up. I have dedicated fundraising team who are also trying to raise extra funds for the cafe to help as much as possible and make this work. Achievable within 3 months.
the money will be spent accordingly:
tables and chairs£200
decorations such as table cloths, flags, banners etc £100
Commercial fridge freezer £150
Professional menu board £50
cash register £50
food cabinet £50
