8 Mandela have been raising awareness and also fundraising to create care packs for HAB during their spring term at Ark Pioneer! We would like to continue doing our part by opening a fundraising page for family and friends to continue to donate to.

So far, Mandela have had a sponsored lesson outside, as well as completed the Big Sleep challenge in their back gardens, just to experience a fraction of what lots of homeless individuals go through day in and day out. Some of the money was used to create care packs with everyday essentials and the rest has been donated to HAB to use for bus fares and phone credit for those who need it.

We hope that even after using the time and opportunity First Give gave to us to fundraise and raise awareness for HAB, people will still continue to support their cause to end homelessness soon!
