Our annual turnover is about £25,000 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. For example, our Annual Sleep Out this year exceeded all expectations and raised over £4,500. Thanks to all who supported us to achieve this incredible result.

 

The following figures are based on the period  Nov 2019 – July 2020, with a summary of the funds raised:

  • Sleep Out £4,538.63
  • Quiz Night £344.40
  • Jumble Sale £276.46
  • Sale of 'best'clothes £200.00
  • Sale of drinks at Wadworth £163.18
  • Donations for food £223.42

Altogether this raised £5,746.09, over a fifth of our annual running costs.

Once more we were delighted by the support from local people and organisations in the same period and therefore a Big Thank You Goes To...
