Thank you for your donations!

For many people, Christmas and New Year is a great time of joy but it can be difficult for those living in fear of violence or abuse in their own homes. Every year, women, men and children in our community flee their homes because of domestic abuse. They often are highly stressed and have no time to pack but see this as their only chance to live in a safe place.

The First Night Campagin aims to support people fleeing domestic vionece on their first night away from home.

Today we handed over a cage full of essential items to Gilgal Birmingham for the First Night Campaign. Thank you to everyone who donated, you helped to make a real difference. We would also like to say a special thank you to Carl, one of our volunteers, who helped to gather so many items from local shops and businesses. Big thanks as well to Bournville Village Trust, Edgwood Court, Harborne House, Firs Close and Four Dwellings School juniors and infants and to everyone else who gave so generously.
