Welcome to my give.net fundraising page. Rather than give me a 40th birthday gift, I would be grateful if you would support the Mustard Tree Foundation charity which works with the disadvantaged and overlooked in Reading. I am a member of the trustee board and would be delighted if you can help to expand the work
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.
Thank you for your support
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.
