Fundraising:  Funding for SCAH comes from a number of sources: the churches, schools, organizations, trust fund grants, community grants and individuals. The average cost of a starter pack was around £150, but has now reduced to around £122 thanks to the generosity of our 'in kind' donors such as ASDA, Tesco, NFU Mutual, Marks and Spencers, Goodman etc and individual donors. The starter pack provides everyday, household goods which most of us take for granted, to people who, often with no resources, are seeking to build a home for themselves and their families. If you would like to discuss making a donation to SCAH's work in cash or in kind , please complete the email form below and press the 'Charity Development' button.

5. Last, but by no means least, our loyal and generous individual donors

1. NFU Mutual realized that their tea and coffee for the office had been 'over-ordered' during 'lock-down' ( with so much home-working) so, with the help of SCAH 'shopper' Paul (shown with Trustees Louise (centre) and David (right) in the photo below) the excess supplies were donated to SCAH and have been included, where required, in starter packs. During the past year NFU have continued to donate tea, coffee, sugar and sweets!


2. ASDA
(Shirley branch) have very kindly donated duvets, pillows, dustpans and brushes and various other artefacts which go into making up 'Starter packs'. In April ASDA made a £750 grant 'in kind' to SCAH. ASDA Community Champion Janet is shown in the first photo below with the trolley loads of goods. In the second photo below Janet is shown with SCAH trustee, Louise, with all of the goods from the £750 'in kind' grant.

 

3. Morrisons (Sheldon Branch) allow SCAH their community discount on all starter pack goods. Shown in the photo below are the Community Champion Morrisons (Sheldon) together with Louise (SCAH Secretary and trustee) and David (SCAH Charity Development Officer and trustee).
