It’s World Homeless Day on October 10 and with your help, we’d like to mark this year’s awareness day by raising money for our emergency accommodation service Nightstop Herts.
Nightstop Herts gives young adults who have nowhere else to go a safe place to stay, in the home of an approved hyh volunteer.
The service prevents young people from sleeping rough, "sofa surfing", or staying in unsuitable accommodation where they could be at risk.
What I enjoy most about hosting is knowing that for a night, or however long they stay, the young person is safe and supported
Bernice, Nightstop Herts host
It's so easy to set up a fundraiser to support our vital Nightstop Herts service. A donation of just £25 can give a vulnerable young person a safe place to stay for the night.
Here are some ideas:
- Wear purple for hyh
- Bake sale
- Dress-down day
- Second-hand book stall
- Coffee morning
- Sponsored silence
- Guess the number of sweets
- Packed-lunch day (donate the amount you’d usually spend on lunch)
Don’t forget to let us know what you’re up to. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
