Let people know where the money raised will go

We think it is really important to let people sponsoring you, know how what their donations can do and how their money is going to help.
Here are a few things your fundraising can help achieve:

    • In 2020, Changing Lives we helped over 500 people a month access our accommodation services in the North East alone. A donation of £20 could help pay for a mobile phone and top up to keep them connected to family or friends
    • £50 could help pay for a moving in pack for someone moving into their own home
    • Being in isolation can potentially impact a person’s mental health and it is important to keep people occupied and active during this time to support their wellbeing. £10 could provide a activity pack to help keep their mind occupied.
    • Access to food and basic necessities, and more so affordable items, is a challenge for many of the people we support. A donation of £35 could enable us to provide a food hamper to someone who may not be able to get out to the shops.
