October is Home-Start Barnet’s

18th Birthday!

To celebrate this we’re asking everyone to help us celebrate by collecting all their pennies in a pot for our Penny Collection Month!

Even a few pennies can make a REALLY BIG DIFFERENCE to families in Barnet.

  • £5 gives a child a Christmas present
  • £10 funds a Home-Start volunteer’s first visit to a family
  • £15 helps a family attend our Family Group
  • £35 pays for a child to go on our summer trip to the seaside
  • £50 trains a Home-Start volunteer
  • £250 – or the equivalent in food – provides a joyful summer picnic for our families

If you’re willing to help please call Grace on 02083710674 and give us your name, address and contact number.  At the end of the month one of our Fundraising Team will call and arrange to collect your pennies.

Thank you so much for your help. Let’s make this a really good birthday month and help more families in Barnet!
