Friends of Doorway

Friends of Doorway is a group of volunteers who are passionate about raising awareness of the vital work done by Doorway and about raising much-needed funds.

The Friends are responsible for running some of Doorway’s most important fundraising events, such as the Spring Fair which this year raised over £3000.  Last year we raised nearly £10,000 at the SleepOut and a further £1700 from street collections.


Our organising committee is very small – just 5 people at the moment. Just think how much more we could have raised with more people on board!

We love working together and with the local groups and businesses who want to give Doorway their support.  Our aim is always to keep the FUN in FUNdraising!


Want to get involved?

Friends of Doorway is always looking for new members who can offer time and energy to help us raise £10,000 in the coming year.

We need:

  • More people to join our committee who have imaginative PR and fundraising ideas and the energy to put them into action. Time commitment = 1-2 days a month.
  • 20 more people who can spare a couple of hours occasionally to help with a street or supermarket collection in one of the 5 towns of north Wiltshire. We could raise up to £2,000 a year if we had more helpers.
  • Supporters to organise events involving friends and neighbours or colleagues at work or at school.
