We help thousands of people to leave homelessness behind for good.


Hyas are committed to fundraise to support Crisis, a charity that offers direct help to people facing homelessness and we hope you can join us by making a donation and/or taking part in a fundraising challenge! For more information on Crisis visit www.crisis.org.uk.

𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗚𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗻 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗻𝗴𝗲 - In our Connecting Garden Communities Challenge we aim to cover the distance between the 5 Garden Communities that Hyas are supporting: St Cuthberts Garden Village in Carlisle, Aylesbury Garden Town, the Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community, North Dorchester Garden Community and Culm Garden Village in Mid Devon. Our target is to connect together, a total distance of 750 miles. We will be taking part in various challenges to smash the 750 miles and maybe beyond! We’re going to run, walk, cycle, row and swim to reach our target.

If you can get involved then you could set your own individual or small team challenge and add to the mileometer and fundraising pot. Create your own JustGiving page by visiting www.justgiving.com and select 'Create Fundraising Page' once created you can link your fundraising page to this Hyas Team Captain page by using the 'join team' at the bottom of the page.

If you’d rather take things a little slower and concentrate on raising funds outside of the mileage challenge then we’d love you to join us, maybe a cake bake/coffee morning, crafting or quiz night - all money raised will be added to the big fundraising pot.

You can also join one of Crisis own organised events run throughout the year by checking out their fundraising page www.crisis.org.uk/get-involved/fundraise/.

𝗛𝘆𝗮𝘀 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗯𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 - Hyas will support you in your fundraising events and would like to be one of your sponsors. Please let us know your fundraising event and we will add a donation to your JustGiving page. We will put together a fundraising calendar with all the events taking place, keep track of the mileage and share progress via our website and social media pages.
