Safe Beds Christmas Appeal 2016

Safe Beds Christmas Appeal 2016

This Christmas, Bromley & Croydon Women’s Aid are seeking donations of new single bed linen sets, cushions or throws to make the beds they offer feel safe.

Remember Project Shoebox from last year?  2016 brings a new appeal for much needed bedding; the safe beds Christmas appeal.  This Christmas, Bromley & Croydon Women’s Aid are asking for donations of new single bed linen sets, cushions or throws to make the beds they offer feel safe.

When a woman leaves an abusive relationship, it can take a lot of courage to leave everything behind. Often women who don’t feel safe or supported in the world outside will actually return to a violent home. Bromley and Croydon’s Women’s Aid works extremely hard to make sure they feel safe enough to stay.

Bromley & Croydon Women's AidBeing able to give the women who go to the refuge a warm, cheering, homely place to stay is the first step to finding security.  This Christmas, they’re asking for donations of new single bed linen sets, cushions or throws to make the beds they offer feel safe.  It’s amazing how much good something as simple as a duvet cover and a cushion can do.

They need:

NEW Single Duvet Covers
NEW Single Fitted Sheets
NEW pillowcases
NEW/PRELOVED cushions and throws

They have even created an Amazon Wishlist to make it super easy to donate, with items starting from as little as £1.50.  Any items purchased will be sent straight to the Project Shoebox team who will deliver it to the refuges.

They don’t get any funding whatsoever, and rely completely on donations.  They are collecting until the end of November so please act now and help a woman sleep soundly.
