We choose a new local charity to support each year. In recent years we have supported The Cellar Trust and Bradford HomeStart.
In 2018 we are fundraising for Staying Put, a Bradford-based charity. Staying Put offers gender sensitive services with a primary aim to increase the safety of all people who experience domestic violence/abuse by providing a range of services challenging perpetrators, supporting people, working in partnership, influencing policy and campaigning for change.
To kickstart our fundraising, we served drinks and snacks at the Haworth Steampunk fair in November 2017 and raised £200.
Our craft fair at the December meeting raised £100.
We are also supporting Bradford Metropolitan Foodbank – please bring donations of non-perishable food items to any of our meetings. So far we have supplied 21 large bags of food items to the foodbank – thank you to everyone who has contributed.
