Hi, my name is Martha.
I am making contact with you because I am looking for willing people to offer their support.
I am currently on an NCS (National Citizen Service) programme with a group of 16–17-year-olds who create a social action project all about giving back and making a positive impact on our community.
As a group of young people we were inspired by the charity Warming Up The Homeless which is a lovely charity that help people who have nowhere to live. We chose this subject and charity because we felt there is a lot of homelessness around Eastbourne and Hastings, therefore we would like to help them in a small way at their time of need.
We are hoping to work with this charity for our social action project in which we are planning to do a sponsored walk along Eastbourne seafront from Sovereign Harbour to Holywell and back. - This is approximately 9 miles give or take. We also are hoping to set up a GoFundMe page with the charity where the money raised will go directly to them.
Not only this but as a group we are going to create care packages for the homeless living in Eastbourne. These would include items like toiletries, everyday essentials, and long-life food. For this we would be very appreciative of any donations of items such as toothbrush, toothpaste, sanitary products, mini torch, socks, underwear, vitamins, protein bars, biscuits, etc.
Unfortunately, we only have until Friday 23rd of July to complete our project which is a very short time frame given the amount we hope to achieve.
If you’re able to help in anyway shape or form I’d really appreciate hearing from you.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
