Annually we need to raise approximately £350,000 (approx £7,000 per week) to cover operating costs.

Gifts in kind
We receive many donations of gifts in Kind and as we receive we give.
Here are some examples:-
For our garden: Summer plants from Hampton Court every year.
For our drop in and foodbank: about 10,000 loaves of bread annually from WholeFoods Market.
About 12000 units of Graze snacks annually.
Pastries and bread from Richmond Hill Bakery.
For our shop: Uncollected clothing from Sheen Laundry and donations collected from local residents.
For our cafe: Cakes and cupcakes twice weekly from Hummingbird bakery for our foodbank visitors who are offered a free meal or tea.
For our morning drop in: Sandwiches and meals 3 days every week from Pret a Manger.
For our shop: Clothing and shoes, pots pans toasters, cutlery and crockery and small household goods – all to help those newly housed, sofa surfing or still rough sleeping. Uncollected clothing from Sheen Laundry and donations collected from local residents.
For our foodbank: Annually, about 20 tons of non-perishable food from supermarket collections and donated by business, churches, charity and individuals. We also receive many ad-hoc donations like pallets of chocolates from Lindt or boxes of toiletries from Unilever.
For our Community Fridge: We also run a community fridge and ‘free’ corner available to all-comers in need. This is for our fruit, veg and fresh dairy products which are donated, mainly via the Felix Project www.thefelixproject.org and City Harvest www.cityharvest.org.uk but also through surplus allotment produce during summer months and many ad hoc donations.
