Hey Twitter, I have a favour to ask ….

Hey, Twitter. I have a favour to ask.  It is also a bit of an experiment which I would like you to help me with.

This is Fundraising Week.  BHT’s First Base Day Centre is forecast to operate at a loss of around £148,000 next year. I’ve had a thought about how you could help.

I recently passed 2,500 Twitter followers. Imagine if each one of you donated just £1 pound, yes £1, each week to the running costs of First Base, we would cover the deficit and be able to expand the work we do.

First Base at Christmas - but we operate the whole year round

First Base offers a range of services to support people who are sleeping rough or insecurely housed in Brighton and Hove, including food, showers, clean and dry clothes, and support to get off the streets. First Base also provides opportunities for work experience and learning. In partnership with other agencies, a range of services are provided for our clients including dentistry, podiatry, nursing interventions, mental health advice and support, and accommodation and relocation services.

That’s just £4 per month. Some of you could even afford a little bit more.

Please support our appeal, Small Change for Big Change. You could download a standing order form or email me and I will send you one.

Please help to get this appeal go viral by retweeting and posting links on your other social media platforms.

Many thanks.
