The Bridge launches new Fundraising Pack to inspire community

The Bridge launches new Fundraising Pack to inspire community

The Bridge (East Midlands), a charity dedicated to preventing and alleviating homelessness in the region since 1993, is proudly announcing the launch of its latest Fundraising Pack.

In response to the escalating housing crisis gripping Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland, we have created an engaging pack, with hopes to rally support from local organisations, individuals, and groups. The pack is designed to inspire and guide fundraisers in joining the critical fight against homelessness in the East Midlands.

The Bridge has been at the forefront of providing essential, free and non-judgmental services to those experiencing homelessness or at risk for 29 years. 

In choosing to download our new Fundraising Pack and raise money, you are supporting our wide array of services - and changing lives as a consequence!

The need for our services has become increasingly urgent, as shown by the 19% surge in referrals to our services over the past year, totalling 5632. This stark rise underscores the critical importance of community engagement and support, as we meet increasing demand.

Jess Metson, Business Development & Fundraising Manager at The Bridge, said:

"We hope people really love and engage with our new Fundraising Pack. We want it to empower individuals and organisations to make a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by homelessness. By providing fun ideas and top tips, the pack encourages community involvement and fosters a sense of collective responsibility in addressing this pressing issue.

"Whether you're an individual, group, business, school or church, your support means the world to us! We know times are tough at the moment, but quite literally every donation counts."
