Solace Surviving Persecution and Exile

Story

Many of the people we help at Solace live in a cashless economy which means they can't afford a bus ride to come to us for therapy. Some of them live several miles from us.

For women with young children it can be a real struggle to get from A to B when they can't afford to take the bus, especially when the weather is bad. Many of them are traipsing miles across Leeds every day.Just £4 would help one of them get around town for a day. £15 would help them for a week. A regular donation could help make someone's life a little less stressful every week.

We need to raise £4,000 a year it costs us at Solace to pay for bus fares every year for our destitute clients.

Just £4 will make a difference by paying for a Day Rider in Leeds.
