Valley House Swim-a-thon
14th December 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
On the 14th of December a brave band of Valley House staff and service users will be taking part in a six mile swim to raise money.
The event will take place at the AT7 Centre in Coventry.
What are we raising money for?
We provide accommodation for to the most vulnerable and isolated individuals and families that have nowhere else to turn. This includes families and individuals escaping domestic abuse. Often individuals and families move in with only the clothes that they are wearing.
What can we get with the money raised?
£10 will buy a bar of soap, deodorant and one item of nightwear.
£40 will buy a welcome pack for a family escaping domestic abuse. This provides basic toiletries and food.
£45 will buy basic washing items and nightwear for one family.
£120 will buy a family toiletries pack, nightwear and food for one week.
Why should you sponsor our swim-a-thon?
We provide ‘Welcome Packs’ to all families and individuals that come to us. We don’t receive any funding for these. Taking away the worry of where the next meal is coming from and ensuring children have something to wear to bed is not a luxury. It’s part of the support we offer. Help us ensure that we can continue to offer this support by sponsoring us.
