Weʼre raising £1,700 to Help Swindon's homeless off the streets, into housing with ongoing support.
- Swindon, UK
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.
Welcome to Swindon Homeless Volunteers fourth JustGiving campaign!
Our first 3 campaigns were a huge success and we have successfully raised enough to provide a home for 3 homeless people. So we're continuing our efforts with this campaign.
Here’s a bit of info about us and what will happen to your donation...
We are working hard to raise £1700 per person enabling us to get the appropriate accommodation for each of them. Yes, there are shelters that open temporarily but unfortunately this is not a long term solution.
Just £1700 per person allows us to:
- Pay deposit
- Pay first month’s rent
- Provide furniture
We then work alongside professionals to help them start a fresh life.
Who are we?
We are a group of volunteers using the proceeds given by the public and businesses to feed our homeless, and provide them with everyday essentials. We rely on donations of many of these essentials and other items.
Raffles and Auctions
We also hold regular raffles & auctions, relying on items & vouchers being donated by the public and businesses raising essential funds to help our cause.
If unable to donate we are hope you can help us in any way you can, such as...
