The first is local - Hackney Winter Night Shelter, which welcomes homeless people in for hot meals and warm beds. You can watch a video about their wonderful work here: http://www.hwns.org.uk/
The second is global - One Happy Family, a community centre for refugees in Lesbos, providing life-changing support to families from Syria, Congo, Afghanistan and many other places. You can read about their projects here: https://ohf-lesvos.org/en/projects/
Both are small, volunteer-run organisations, which means every pound we raise goes to the people who need it.
Once all the donations are in, we'll split the pot 50/50 and transfer the funds to each organisation via their fundraising pages.
Please only give what you can - even small donations make a difference. And no worries at all if you're not able to contribute - making the journey to be with us on the day really is generous enough!
Thanks very much and lots of love,
Sarah and Max
