Support HEART

As we are in another lockdown our already limited income decreases further. If you are able to spare anything for our Crowdfunder we would be so grateful. Not only will it help us get through the next few months but will also mean we can invest in our outside area to make this an even lovelier environment for all of you to use as this space will be really important to maintain everyone’s safety, even when we can reopen. Every penny helps us during this difficult time to ensure we have our building properly equipped and maintained, ready to serve our community.

We have been so overwhelmed by the generosity of HEART supporters over this time and hope you can still continue to offer that support. As ever, Whether it’s £1 or £100, it all makes a difference to HEART and we promise to value every donation and ensure we use it to help HEART survive and thrive.
