When lockdown began on 23rd March and MAFW was born, we set an initial fundraising target of £25,000 to feed +1,000 households by the end of June. With your help we've reached this original target, and we've supported nearly twice that number of households so far. But there's a long way to go to ensure we can keep providing for those in need until the end of August.As a result we have set a new fundraising target of £50,000. With your continued support, we can get there together. Please help today 🙏💖 Why not help us towards our new target this week by buying tickets for the MAFW raffle? With over 80 amazing prizes up for grabs and all the revenue from the ticket sales being donated to MAFW, it's a no brainer!
