We continue to receive generous donations to our Fundraising Appeal both from many of the Churches in Kingston and from individuals. The money has been used to help our work with the homeless in Kingston and to contribute to our general tenants’ welfare fund. Projects to date include:
- We spent £6,500 installing a much-needed new central heating system for the single homeless project which at the time we ran jointly with Kingston Churches Action on Homeless (KCAH).
- In 2005 we set up a scheme to help our older and disabled tenants with decorations to their homes (all tenants are normally responsible for their own internal decorations).
- In 2006 we launched our updated website to allow tenants to find out more easily about our work and plans for the future, to report repairs online, to let us know their views and so forth.
- The fund has helped us to maintain the community based alarms in our sheltered schemes in Kingston when other funding was withdrawn.
There are many more opportunities like this to help our work. So thanks to all the churches and individuals who have given so generously to date – but if you would like to contribute to our continuing Fundraising Appeal please contact us directly.
