Feeding Families Regular Donation
What would £2 buy you? A coffee? A ready meal? A couple of hours of parking?
What can you buy for £5? A bottle of wine? A sandwich lunch? A Kindle book?
Could you save just a small amount each month and donate it to Feeding Families? We are looking for regular donors who will help us to have some financial security to meet our costs such as insurance, safeguarding advice, stationery etc. – the things we need to keep operating. This enables hundreds of families to get the help they need and is vital as we grow.
To do this please complete a direct debit or standing order form at People's Fundraising. If you are a tax payer, please Gift Aid your gift so we can claim the tax back as this makes a big difference to what we receive.
It's really exciting when we receive a donation we were not expecting! Although we started with the intention of just receiving food donations, we quickly found that we do have other expenses to cover. One of the largest of these is buying extra food to bulk up the donations we receive for our hampers. We never receive equal quantities of donations so we always plan to go and buy more of items we are missing for our packing days.
You might consider doing one of the following:
- Running a fundraising event at your business and donating the proceeds
- Doing a sponsored event
- Birthday gift in lieu of presents
- Memorial collection to commemorate a loved one
- Having a Christmas collection instead of sending Christmas cards
- Teachers organising a class collection instead of individual gifts from children
- Churches adopting Feeding Families to serve their local community
- Or come up with your own idea!
