Join in one of our fundraising events and help to give someone living in poverty or homelessness a chance to change their life – for good. We cannot provide all our services without your help. Whether you are joining in The Big Back Garden Sleep, running a race or taking part in a cycling event every penny you raise makes a real difference to peoples lives. If you are taking part in your own fundraising event, let us know and we will support you on social media!

If you have a great idea please contact our Marketing & Fundraising Coordinator and we will be happy to help.


As the weather turns colder, we are inviting people to donate coats and warm clothing to ensure everyone stays warm this winter. All donations will be given to people in Wigan and Leigh who may struggle to keep warm during the winter months. As well as winter coats, we would appreciate donations of hats, scarves, socks, underwear (new please), men’s and ladies winter shoes and toiletries.
