Winter Appeal

Help us rebuild lives this winter

The past year has us all feel vulnerable but for the people, we support this is nothing new. 

Even before COVID-19, most of the people in our care felt vulnerable and isolated from society. This year, the pandemic put their lives in greater danger. For those without a home, sleeping on the streets, escaping domestic abuse and living with addiction and/or mental health issues, everyday has been one of struggle and worry.

As such, the need for our life-changing services has dramatically increased, at a time when our income streams have been drastically reduced. The pandemic has meant the cancellation of most of our fundraising events and caused our charity and bike workshops to temporarily close. This is vital voluntary income needed to fund our life-changing services.

This makes our important work that much harder. That’s why your support will make such a difference this Winter.
