Weʼre raising £10,000 to Help fund the continuous work carried out by Action on Homelessness in Folkestone and the urgent need of a van.

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.
Our voluntary group carries out different work in Folkestone to support the Homeless and vulnerable. Twice weekly a hot meal is served to those who need it. In addition clothing, and bedding is given to these that need it at this service.
We are also asked to support families and individuals from a range of other agencies and do so whenever we can. For example supplying furniture to those being rehoused from leaving a refuge or after a period of homelessness. Families and individuals in need are also supported with emergency food supplies whenever we can and a request is received.
Our group receives no funding and is supported through the generous donations of local individuals and business for which we are truly grateful. To continue our work we need continued funding. We support the homeless and vulnerable 52 weeks of the year whenever there is a need we will try and be there. Therefore should you be able to offer a donation no matter how small it will go a long way to support the work we carryout. £2 will fund a meal for a homeless person for a week. £5 will enable us to offer an emergency food package to a family in need.
The group is currently in urgent need of a van to help transport the food and items we are donated. Currently volunteers are using cars which is not effective. We have secured part funding but need more to guarantee a good quality reliable van that will enable us to carry out our work.
We will be grateful of all donations received to enable us to support those in our community that need support.

We are still working hard to support those that need it here is Folkestone. The group has identified an urgent need of a van to help transport food supplies and donated items to and fro. Therefore we would be grateful for lots of shares of this page and any donations at all. It will all go to help those who need it most in our community.
