Rotary Shelter Bus September Update 2018

Dear Friend,

You subscribed to email updates from Rotary Shelterbus for the Homeless in Birmingham by Rotary Club of Birmingham Breakfast Charitable Trust, a project on GlobalGiving. Here's the unedited update from the field:

It is important to all of the Trustees at Rotary Shelter Bus that we keep all of our generous donors up to date on the latest behind-the-scenes news of Shelter Bus. 


 
Finding our partner

The Trustees have been busy behind the scenes working with the local authority in Birmingham to negotiate a partnership. As you know, solidifying a charity/local authority partner is a vital step in ensuring Shelter Bus is up and running. We understand that our tenants will come from all walks of life, some with complex needs that require specialist care. Currently, we are working with the Street Intervention Team to nail out the logistics of how this partnership will work and what funding will be required from both parties. Our goal is for this partnership to be official by the end of the summer or at minimum we have a solid timescale to update our donors further. Stay tuned to our social channels and your inbox for further information. 

 

Fundraising Update


We are also applying for grants to ensure we have sufficient funds to keep the service running.
Rotary Shelter Bus was one of the selected charities to receive a donation from Jewsons building better communities grant scheme. We were donated £4,000, thank you Jewsons.

We have also taken part in the Tesco's Blue tokens. We are currently awaiting the results. this will be a massive help in supporting our funding.  


Bus Renovation Update

We are working tirelessly to get our bus ready to be sent to get converted. Our first priority is to ensure we have our partnership organisation locked in, to give assurance to our generous stakeholders that our project is fit for long-term success. Our current talks with the local authority have highlighted even more insight on how to best utilise space in the design. Therefore, a final date on the renovation of ShelterBus is in the works once that partnership and final bus design is solidified. 
Volunteer Opportunities 

We are always looking for support in the planning and behind the scenes running of the Rotary Shelter Bus. Whether you can help get funding through grants or donations or be a volunteer speaker to help raise awareness by giving talks to different audiences and attending local events. 
 

Thank you so much for all of your support so far. We are continuously taking donations on this platform, as well as any volunteers looking to help make our cause a reality. Don't forget to stay tuned to our Facebook page and share the news. The more people we reach, the more good we can do for our local community. 

Have a wonderful summer. 

Kind regards, 

The Rotary ShelterBus Team
