Help us to Help Families

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

The centre is witnessing unprecedented levels of poverty in the West End of Newcastle and amongst our membership. Women are struggling to feed their children, light and heat their homes. This is happening for many reasons, zero hour contracts, low wages, welfare benefits changes and delays to payments, bedroom tax and changes to benefits for the sick, those with disabilities and mental ill health. As a response, we have decided to launch a new fund for families called the Mrs Robinson Fund. We are naming it after our longest standing member who sadly passed away in 2016. Mrs Robinson was very generous and would always donate money to the centre and other local charities. We are asking you to be as generous as Mrs Robinson and donate money to the centre in her name, which we will then distribute to families in need. Please only donate what you can afford and don’t leave yourself short.

You can donate by visiting our website by clicking HERE or by sending a cheque. For online donations, please note in the message field your donation is for the Mrs Robinson fund. For cheques, please note the fund on the reverse.

Thank you.
