BHT would like to thank everyone for their outstanding generosity this Christmas and for helping us to exceed our fundraising target.
We hoped to raise £12,000 over the festive period but have reported a final total of £16,295.24.
We organised a range of events over the festive period to raise money for First Base and to ensure homeless men and women would have somewhere warm and dry to go over Christmas.
Events ranged from Christmas fairs, street collections and a social media campaign which saw 12 films following the progress of homeless men and women accessing services at First Base.
We cannot thank everyone who has supported us enough for their generosity.
£16,295.24 is the most BHT has ever raised over Christmas and we feel very grateful that people have been so generous at a time when economically, things are incredibly tough.
The money raised enabled First Base to be open over the Christmas period to offer support, advice, warmth and comfort at what can be a very difficult and lonely time for the people using its services.
Liz Davies, BHT Fundraising Officer
I am particularly grateful for the 19 Brighton and Hove City Councillors, of all parties, who braved the cold on Saturdays during December to help with our street collection.
Andy Winter, BHT Chief Executive
