Grow your Tenner for Home-Start Slough

Help us raise much needed funds to help families in Slough and its surrounding areas by getting your donations doubled!

On Tuesday, October 15, Home-Start Slough will be taking part in Localgiving.com ‘Grow your Tenner’ where for every £10 raised, the website will match it.

That means all donations up to £10 will be doubled, so a tenner becomes £20, or £22.50 with Gift Aid and £5 will become a tenner. Monthly donation will double up to £10 a month for six months.

To donate to Home-Start Slough and help double their money, click onto www.localgiving.com/homestartslough from 10am on October 15.

Home-Start Slough helps parents, with at least one child under five, who are suffering from stress and difficulties ranging from mental health issues, physical or mental disability, financial deprivation, family breakdown, single parenting, multiple births, abuse, neglect or isolation.

Our volunteers are at the heart of everything we do, providing practical help, emotional support, friendship and fun to parents who are struggling to cope and who, for whatever reason, aren’t getting the help they need.

If families crumble, communities disintegrate and children suffer. That’s why our volunteers work with parents at home to help them cope with the stresses and strains of parenthood so they can be stronger and their children can be happier.

The charity helps anyone, regardless of background, and at present, there are up to 100 families waiting for vital help.

Janine Edwards, scheme manager, said: “The Localgiving.com campaign is a great way to help our charity raise much needed funds for our work.

“If people can donate up to £10 a time, we will get double the money. So far, we have helped up to 100 families in the last year, with many more waiting for vital help.

“Very often, we’re the last chance they have.”

If people would like to donate more than £10, it would be great if they could do it in £10 lots – otherwise a £20 donation at once will only be double for the first tenner.
