Friday Update – 27th March 2015

Posted: March 27, 2015 in Uncategorized

In this week’s Friday Update I want to share something that’s a little difference to the usual stats…

about a month ago one of the young men we have helped and who has supported some of our delivery came to me and said he loved the work we do so much that he would donate £100 to our Listen 2 Lambeth crowdfunder.

Lovely, of course. We just didn’t know how he would manage to make a donation of that size.

Fast forward a month…then, James came in yesterday and explained how he’s been putting a few pounds aside each day, eating less junk food and walking instead of riding the bus all the time and that he’d saved up the £100 he said he’d donate to us. He was motivated to improve his health by giving to support our work.

Truly amazing and personally I am honestly moved by his dedication and generosity !

He used our LocalGiving’s dedicated ‘Listen 2 Lambeth’ page to make his £100 donation and with Gift Aid, this was increased to £125 !

That took our total to over £5,600 and we are now at over £6,200

James knows the value of what we do at The RWF.

Will you help us to reach our target ?

And if you have already made a donation, I would like to thank you personally and if you are now inspired by James’ actions to make another donation – it would mean so much to us and all the people we will be helping with this new project.

We have seven days left and every little helps.

So please do pledge and know you made a difference.
