Thank you for considering a donation to Protect the SMART Prebend Centre.
The SMART Prebend Centre is a well-used day centre for the homeless operating 365 days a year in Bedford, supporting those who sleep rough, are vulnerably housed and often face issues around social isolation and exclusion. The centre is a place of safety, meeting the basic needs of service users; providing food, warmth, water, a place to get clean and rest.
It costs £250,000 per year to keep the centre open, funded entirely through charitable donations and grants and the support of the local community. This year, we are in need of an additional £20,000 as the centre is facing significant additional costs associated with an old building in need of urgent repairs.
We hope to raise £15,000 at the SMART Prebend Masquerade Ball in September, but we know many of our supporters are unable to attend and would still like to support the centre with a donation to Protect the SMART Prebend Centre. We have set a £5,000 online target!
Please help us to reach our online target, so we can Protect the SMART Prebend Centre for years to come!
