In addition to this, during the cold winter months the charity raises money through their annual ‘Sponsor a Bag’ appeal. With a target amount of £5,000 for 2023, all funds raised via their Just Giving page go to provide essential ‘Winter Bags’, which contain warm clothes such as thermal vests, socks, blankets and also toiletries and some food.
The bags are packed and organised by the volunteers, including some of the team from Fruition Properties, and then distributed by Organising Food for London. Last year the team managed to raise enough money to provide 750 ‘Winter Bags’ and this year’s winter appeal, which is now live, hopes to raise enough money to repeat this.
Please see Organising Food For London | Facebook for further information or to make a donation please visit their Just Giving page. Like last year, Fruition Properties will match any donations made up to the sum of £1000.
