Weʼre raising £2,000 to help fund a winter night shelter in Wellingborough
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.
In Wellingborough, as in many towns, there is a rising number of people who are sleeping rough or relying on friends for "sofa surfing". During the winter months, it can be particularly hard if your home is a doorway or tent. The Winter Night Shelter in Wellingborough will provide an evening meal, a bed, breakfast, advice and support to those who are sleeping rough from November 2018 to March 2019. The shelter will be run by volunteers. £50 will ensure the shelter is open for one week during the winter. £30 will buy a sleeping bag for a homeless person. £20 will provide the 12 guests with an evening meal.
