St Basils £5 Appeal

St Basils houses almost 500 young people every single night. We’re short of £5 a day per young person staying in one of our projects. That £5 will assist in supporting each young person out of homelessness and transform their life.

Can your business help with raffle prizes?

20th Sep, 2021

As a charity one of the main ways we can raise more funds is by hosting prize draws and raffles at our events, where members of the public taking part buy raffle tickets in the hope of winning one of the prizes on offer. The better the prizes therefore, the more tickets people will buy, and the more funds this will raise for our cause.
