I used to work with June and have visited the Skylight Centre on more than one occasion. I cannot tell you how much I think this charity deserves a vote. See also www.crisis.org.uk.
People’s Postcode Trust wants to award £30,000 to the public’s favourite charities. We’ve selected 6 amazing charities from across North East England, each competing for a top prize of £15,000 as well runner up prizes of £10,000 and £5,000. The charity with the most votes wins. See www.votethatcounts.org.
June Grimes, Director of Crisis Skylight Newcastle, said: “We are over the moon to be nominated to be a part of the competition – but we need our supporters to make sure we get the highest number of votes and secure the funding.
“£15,000 would make a huge difference to us at Crisis Skylight Newcastle. We could pay for our entire Christmas service, providing hot meals, warmth, companionship and advice on how to move away from homelessness. Not only that but this money would pay for life-changing services well into the New Year.”
Voting opens on Monday 29 October and closes at midnight on Sunday 18 November. Please take just two minutes to make your vote count for Crisis Skylight Newcastle.
