Its been a busy start to the year so far at The Shoebox Fairies HQ. Like all third sector services we are seeing an increase in the number of our referrals due to the cost of living crisis. Unfortunately during this time services like ours become increasingly stretched and we are always appreciative of the generous donations of time, goods and monies that we receive.
Since the new year we have aimed to increase the number of corporate volunteering opportunities avaialable due to the number of requests we received over the Christmas period. We were very grateful to be joined by Linsday and her team from Wigan Council in March. Please keep your eyes on our social media for further opportunities over the summer period.
We are always looking to expand our Shoebox Fairy family - if you have a couple of hours going spare here and there then please get in touch. We aim to tailor our opportunities to your availability and interests. If there is a skill you have been meaning to develop further then we might be a great place to put it practice!
This Easter we were able to support our local Startwell with a donation of goodies.
We love networking with other local charities and community groups. If you feel that your service users would benefit from our appeals or would like to find out more about working together then please drop us an email at email@example.com
Behind the scenes we are busy organising more fundraising events and you may have seen a Save the Date for our "Hot Pot and Horses" event scheduled in September. We can't wait to tell you more about it and ways that you can get involved. Our Shoebox Fairies Ball in June seems a long while ago now and we are "chomping at the bit" for our next fundraiser!
