Yesterday we were thrilled to receive a cheque for £2000 from Coventry Building Society, Bell Green branch.
The branch has been championing Valley House for just over 1 year and supports us with fundraising and volunteering. This fabulous bunch will be returning later this year to perk up the community garden, which is still looking fantastic after the makeover they funded last year. Through the Coventry Building Society Community Grant scheme, we were awarded £600 for our Domestic Abuse ‘Welcome Packs’, a provision of vital toiletries, food and clothes we provide for which we receive no funding.
The money raised will by used by our Young Parent Service. We provide safe accommodation and community support to teenage parents that are vulnerable, homeless and struggling. This fantastic sum of money will go towards providing opportunities to take these families on trips and have experiences they would not normally be able to afford.
Soon the Bell Green branch will be holding a raffle for Valley House, the star prize of which is a whopping £1000! Tickets will be on sale for just £1 and there will be runner up prizes too. We’ll let you know when you can pop into the branch to purchase your tickets.
We’d like to finish with a big Thank You to all staff at Coventry Building Society, particularly the Bell Green Branch for all their support, you really are helping us to make a difference to vulnerable people in Coventry and Warwickshire.
