Donations of dry food items, for example bags of rice or pasta, help our food budget stretch further.

Donations of cleaning materials and products, toilet rolls, kitchen towels, soap, shampoo and other personal hygiene items aid our housekeeping budget and are vital in helping us to teach our children and young people the importance of caring for oneself and for a home.

Our children and young people greatly enjoy our organised sessions, many of which are only possible through the kind consideration of local businesses and organisations which allow us to use school halls, dance studios, sports and leisure facilities.

Sponsorship and donations from businesses and community fundraising groups/organisations are essential in helping us to keep our promise of long-term support.

We are delighted to engage with companies looking to fulfil their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). We will give presentations to ensure the workforce know what they are supporting and therefore have a ‘connection’ when they are fundraising or donating through salaries or wages for example.

We are keen to give back to our sponsors.  We can contribute to training events or motivational presentations.

Community Groups, such as Rotary and Masonic groups, can be confident that their fundraising efforts are appreciated and donations spent wisely.
