A night at Sobar

In December Framework launched a Christmas Challenge - a fundraising campaign to help and keep people off the streets by funding intensive and personalised one-to-one support. The launch evening was a festive affair to mark the start of the challenge and to thank some of our most dedicated supporters for their dedication over the year. You can see the night captured below in pictures.

The evening was sponsored by The Nottingham Building Society. Our challenge was to raise £25,000 to fund this resettlement work in Nottingham for the next year.

We are delighted to announce that with the help of a select group of dedicated supporters and the extremely generous gifts of £2,500 from Actons Solicitors and £500 from local stationer's Geoff Ball that we have now raised a total of £30,000. The exceeded target means that resettlement work can go on for more than the 12 months that we originally hoped to fund. It means over this time our resettlement worker John can continue helping 60+ people move from the street to a home and receive the guidance needed to retain their independence.  

Huge thanks from all at Framework to every person who made the choice to support our Challenge.
