Welcome to my give.net fundraising page.
Sue and Nathan are celebrating a total of 100 years of life! We really don't need anything ourselves but if you would like to make a donation to our chosen charity that would be appreciated. Engage Befriending is a project of The Mustard Tree Foundation; the charity which Sue currently works for. Engage Befriending connects volunteers with isolated older people. 91% of our clients say they feel less isolated since being introduced to their befriender. The project is having an impact on the day to day lives of many in our town and any financial support for this valuable project is appreciated.
Donating with give.net is really easy and completely secure. If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give. Thanks for visiting!
The Mustard Tree's simple aim is to be a voice for the unheard in local communities across Reading and the surrounding area. We do this by identifying, incubating and resourcing local faith-based social action projects that address unmet or overlooked needs, and championing change in strategic contexts. We currently have four projects:
The Rahab Project - Identifying, supporting and empowering anyone who is affected by exploitation.
Reading Lifeline - Counselling and support for those affected by infertility or baby loss during pregnancy or soon after birth.
Engage Befriending - Reconnecting isolated older people with their community through regular visits from a befriender.
Starting Point – Helping NEET young adults to access opportunities through mentoring and work experience.
We have been supporting our community for over 13 years, acting as a hub for 10 different projects, which cumulatively have impacted the lives of over 2,000 people and mobilised over 250 local volunteers.
