We're very excited to announce that our application, 'West Berkshire Homeless (Newbury Area) - Exiting Homelessness', has just been approved by The Good Exchange. We now need to raise as much as we can via the Good Exchange and West Berkshire Homeless will get matched funding from the Greenham Common Trust.
For more details and how to make a donation, click the link below. Please spread the word and forward the link to anyone you know who may also like to donate. This is a fantastic opportunity to double the donations for West Berkshire Homeless!
Thank you so much for your generosity and support.
One of our generous supporters has very kindly covered the cost of our new West Berkshire Homeless banner which we'll be using at fund raising events. Keep a look out for it!
Volunteers play a vital part in any Charitable Organisation and in the run up to the Winter Night Shelter West Berkshire Homeless really need more help in a lot of areas.
Could you help by offering:
TIME (eg. planning future fund raising events)
SERVICES (eg. transport/general volunteering)
SKILLS (eg. cookery, IT, accountancy)
DIY (eg. house and garden maintenance)
AWARENESS (eg. join the social media team)
LISTENING (eg. befriending & meeting clients for coffee)
TEACHING (eg. sharing/teaching a hobby clients might like to take up)
Please do contact us if you feel you could help in any way.
One of our clients set up this Facebook group to help educate people about our beautiful water based birds
Phase 2 of WBH has been implemented! The Night Shelter closed its doors on 4 March 2018 and 15 clients are now in rented accommodation and half way houses to provide the next steps on their journey. It is our intention that none of our regulars go back into tents.
We held our 3rd collection day at Sainsbury's Newbury on Friday 3rd August 2018 from 9am-8pm. On behalf of WBH thank you to all those who volunteered to collect and for all your hard work on the 11 hour shift!
We raised an amazing £303.51!
Well done to one and all!
Couldn't have done it without you!
Thank you to Sainsbury's!
