STAGES BUILDING APPEAL
With all that we do, STAGES now needs our own base. At the moment we are hiring a room around someone else’s capacity, but as we continue our work and expand it to more people, we need a base to run more group and one to one sessions, keep our equipment, meet our services users and run a shop with the goods that are donated to us to sell. To do this we need local support. If you can help us to find a building or to raise awareness and funds for our needs, please let us know.
If you can fundraise for us through a sponsored challenge, a local sale, coffee mornings, a raffle or a donation box at work, an event or you have any other ideas, please help us in any way that you can.
We have set up an appeal on our local giving website when you can make online donations. Please support, donate and share this link to help our community become a better place for those vulnerable people who need us.
