ASDA Green Token Giving

ASDA have kindly awarded us an opportunity to secure some much-needed funding?

£ 500 would be amazing, we would like to use this to buy a range of toiletry items, including soap, deodorant, sanitary pads, which we have just run out of.

Having these available is so important to us, no one should have to choose between personal hygiene and feeding themselves or their family.

Please vote for us and help us secure the money to make a difference to those in need in Telford & Wrekin.

Thank you, everyone.

Van makeover

Our “big white van” got a makeover this week, a newly updated livery has been added (the keen-eyed may notice there’s room for adding another email address, more news coming soon!)

Sending a big thank you to Matt @Partridge_Opt for sponsoring the van and a shout out to our own Debbie, for creating and fitting it.
