Cash-strapped Wiltshire charity receives offers of help
Struggling charity Vine for Pat is hopeful in its search for funding to save it from closure after appealing for help in The Wiltshire Times last week.
The charity, offering temporary accommodation to vulnerable teenage girls and young women from across Wiltshire at its hostel in Fore Street, Trowbridge, is looking for £50,000 to pay its running costs until the end of the year.
Pat Penny said: “We have had a few small donations from members of the public and we had someone offering us storage if we needed it, so we hope it will grow from there.
“We hope that it starts with a trickle then it turns into a flood.
“A lot of people have been saying to me I hope you get through. Its early days, no one knows at this stage. Patience is a virtue but at the moment it is hard.”
Anyone who can donate or fundraise for the charity can call 01225 710466 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
