Our annual turnover has been about £16,000 a year. This pays for the premises, the food and the part-time paid staff. We have been raising this amount by applying for grants, receiving donations from groups and individuals and holding fund raising events.
Fund raising events are often a lot of fun. Thanks to all those who supported our two Jumble Sales in 2107. the Combined total raised by the two came to £642. At the April re-launch of Devizes Opendoors several people said they would also like to help with raising funds. Since then there has been a successful Quiz Evening and a great Concert; thanks to the music grroup, "Devyne" and to others who contributed to the evening. Together they and the Quiz evening raised a further £1230. Nexxt up is our annual Sponsored Sleep Out is on 2nd December.
Donations come from people as either one-off gifts or as monthly amounts and both are very much appreciated! Cheques should be to “Devizes Opendoors”. Our address is St. John's Parish Office, Long Street, Devizes, SN10 1NN.
