Next Step Support held a Bake Sale at Head Office to raise money for the Crisis Organisation over the festive period. We invited all the staff and had the service users involved in baking and purchasing cakes for the sale. We invited everyone to enjoy the treats and donate generously to the cause, as for every £28.87 raised it would cover a place at Crisis for someone who’s homeless this Christmas. The Crisis centre guests receive; advice, food, warmth, company and much more!
We started off with a Goal of £300, Our Bake Sale was such a success that we managed to exceed that tremendously by raising £1,825.50 which was enough to cover spaces for 64 people!
We are pleased and thankful for everyone’s donations and help! We had plenty of cakes and treats left over which we sent out to our services to be enjoyed by our service users.
Following the successful Bake Sale we also purchased thermal hats, gloves and scarves to give out to those on the cold streets before Christmas! A few of us headed into London and handed these out to those who were out in the cold and offered to buy them a hot meal and drink from McDonalds! It was heart-breaking to meet individuals who were out on the streets in the cold weather during this festive period however we are glad that we managed to help a little and put a smile on their faces.
We look forward to continuing to help !
