Pledge to donate a £1

In the last year alone we are proud to say we have donated items from food and clothing to baby items furniture and all essential household items to over 2500 cases in Thanet and supported hundreds of clients in many different situations .offering support, advice and useful links.

Our organisation has grown and developed completely from donation of items and the amazing backing and support from so many wonderful people in our community for the better of the whole community but we have many costs will still have pay to be able to run our 100% voluntary organisation with the main priority being the rent for our essential base.

We have received no help or interest to date from our council leaders who we have met some months ago and have we have got through the summer months.

We are currently on a marathon fundraiser for our rent, bills as well as the forthcoming increase in demand again as the colder weather makes it return making sure people in Thanet facing hardship can get the help we can provide.

Our services over the last few months have grown massively including a 24/7 emergency food bank and telephone support service with freephone number option for all in Thanet.

September and October are huge months for us this year with us finally bringing the group support and specialist services we have been promising for so long. 

As well as our self referrers, we are receiving an ever increasing amount of requests direct from outside agencies and other community organisations we have linked which we think is really important for all of us to have as many links as possible to pass onto our clients. 

With and with winter approaching we are already starting to prepare for another huge surge in demand and are currently dealing with lot's of winter clothing bundle and jacket requests.

We have also been given an opportunity to get that extra space we need for the forthcoming projects we have planned for so long including our workshops, respite and so much for all of the community to benefit from.We have our winter soup kitchen from November - February to accommodate and have been given a chance to make this all come together just where we are but need to raise funds to cover our costs as it is here and now and for the coming weeks and months.

At the end of every month we will update you on each months pledging funds raised. 

We are asking people to make their pledges by visiting hitting the DONATE button powered by PAYPAL

Please pass this on, spread the word and help us to keep up up with the ever growing demands 

Thank you for your time,
