Bedspace Fundraiser Announcement 2022!

18 02 22

Following the success of last year's Winter Campaign, Bedspace plans to surpass the amount raised (of £4865; with Bedspace matching donations to a grand total of £8000). This year we are aiming to raise £8000+ in donations!

Our very own Nick ThornhillAndrew BrooksThomas Culshaw are taking part in multiple Marathons/Runs/Hikes across the UK and abroad in the hopes of raising as much money to be shared across local branches of the Mind (our chosen charity by our Bedspace Team), WWF (as part of the 10 Peaks Challenge & the Bedspace Trust.

We are encouraging/supporting our team across 2022 to fundraise in their own ways and have already received some great ideas!

2022 will see the launch of the Bedspace Trust Charity this year, a charity set up by us at Bedspace Resource Ltd to aid in funding those who are post-18. Once a young person reaches 18, funding from Local Authorities is normally cut leading to a vicious cycle of sofa surfing, potential homelessness and reversing all the progress made from previous support. The Bedspace Trust aims to continue funding those who are not seen as independent and provide them with a continuation of support and accommodation.

We would appreciate any friends, family, local businesses and agencies that would like to help support this initiative in any way they can; with no donation too big or too small. We rely not only on donations but on you sharing this appeal across social media or word of mouth to spread awareness.
