Help us this #GivingTuesday

Carousel (Fundraising)#GivingTuesday is a national Fundraising campaign that urges members of the public to give to local charities in a bid to raise awareness of the great work we do, this year it falls on November the 29th 2016. 

With your help we can make a real difference to the lives of Havering’s adults. Without support ourselves, we’d never be able to provide such a varied and vast range of services. You and your loved ones need our support, and we need yours too. Whether it’s time, goods or money, you can be assured that whatever you give will be greatly appreciated in many ways.


Here’s a few ideas to get you started:

Donate in Person: You can make a donation at any of our reception desks or at our Charity Shop. We accept both cash and cheques, made payable to ‘Tapestry’.

Donate by Text/Online: Short on time? You can donate and support our work by text message. Simply text ‘TAPS05 £5‘ to 70070 to make a one-off donation of five pounds. You can also donate online by visiting our JustGiving page:

Volunteer your Time: You may want to give us the gift of time by volunteering instead. You can find out more about volunteering for our organisation, such as what roles we currently have, by visiting our volunteering page.

Hold a fundraising event: From 5k Fun Runs to Bake-a-thons, there are a wide range of events you, your friends, family, office, school or club could hold to help raise funds for us. You can find out more about ‘Holding a Sponsored Event’ (and download one of our sponsorship forms) on our fundraising page. You can use our JustGiving page to set up and promote your event, and to take payments if you prefer.

Leave a legacy in your will: How about something that would have a lasting impact, such as leaving a legacy to us in your will? Legacy Giving is a great way to give to charity and ensure that you continue to positively affect people’s lives long after you’ve gone. We’ve created an FAQ to talk you through Legacy Giving which can be found on our website here.

Donate your old car: Yes, that’s right. You can now donate your old car to Tapestry. Whether it’s a shiny second-hand car that’s still in good nick, or a dusty old banger that has seen better days, your car can help us get local people more socially mobile about the community by helping us fund our much-needed services, including our wheelchair accessible Minibuses. Journey over to our GiveACar page for more information.

Donate old stuff to our shop: Our Charity Shop in Hornchurch is always looking for good quality clothes, shoes, games and bric-a-brac and can happily take any old clutter off your hands. Every penny our shop makes get reinvested into our work and helps us reach out to local people.
