As central government funding has declined we are now even more dependent on the generosity of individuals, schools, groups and businesses in our local communities in order to continue our vital services helping young people who are homeless or at risk. Additionally the COVID-19 situation will lead to a significant loss of funds for us as we are not able to pursue are usual avenues or methods such as large scale fundraising events.
However there are still ways you can get involved and make a difference.
While the COVID-19 Pandemic continues we have understandably had to cancel or postpone most of our events. However we are developing a number of virtual fundraisers you can do from the safety of your own home. Please see our Events section for more details.
Basil Bear is our fundraising Mascot. He’s a very social bear who loves SELFIES! You can follow what he’s up to online and in exchange for a small donation we can send you one of Basil’s many cousins to keep you company or give to your children to take on Basil Teddy Bear picnics.
These are all the businesses we’re partnering with at the moment. This includes businesses who have committed to helping and fundraising for us in different ways for an agreed amount of time, or are sponsoring our events or providing ongoing assistance.
