Testimonial
"Thank you very much for the donations received from Foundation DB. Approximately half of the money received has been spent or allocated to be spent on funding emergency Nightstop placements for young people who would otherwise be homeless. The Nightstop placements provide them with a safe place to stay + Dinner, bed and breakfast with a caring Host family. £400 was spent on Starter Packs for Young People when they move in with their Host. The packs include towels and essential toiletries. The remainder of the money is being used to help us recruit more Host families. We are hoping to produce a new Marketing video which the balance will be put towards."
