Homeless person WISHES FOR

10 hot or cold takeaway drinks

£20.00



Your donation will pay for 10 BillyChips, which can be redeemed for food and drink at any participating outlet.

BillyChip®️ Foundation registered charity 1188779 was set up in 2018 to continue the legacy of Billy Abernethy-Hope a twenty-year-old ambulance driver from Bristol who was the inspiration and idea behind the BillyChip®️. After helping support the homeless at Christmas, Billy felt disheartened at how little support the general public gave to local homeless people. Many people donate to charity on a regular basis but Billy was surprised what a small percentage of donations were given directly to people living rough on our streets. Turns out most people are apprehensive to give money directly to homeless people because it's not possible to know how a donation is spent.

Unfortunately, the common perception is the money will be used for alcohol, drugs or cigarettes. Even if a donation of food or drink is given to safeguard your donation, it is very awkward as people have to make assumptions of what the person would like and when. The alternative is to engage with that person, ask the question and purchase what’s required which many feel uncomfortable doing. Billy recognized that the likelihood of someone having the time, inclination, courage, and kindness to engage with a homeless person to buy them food or drink was too big a challenge. That was the eureka moment when he first thought up the concept of the BillyChip®️. Sadly Billy never got to launch the BillyChip as planned due to his untimely death whilst backpacking in Thailand.

Bespoke Memory box and a Memory bear for a bereaved child

£200.00



We provide large A4 bespoke, personalised, Memory boxes of exceptional quality to help bereaved children remember someone who has died. When you lose a child there is often very little support for the bereaved sibling. The Memory boxes are a very simple, but effective way of helping a sibling remember their brother or sister and preserve their very precious and personal memories. The Child has full control over the design process and choosesa background theme and colour for their memory boxes. The photos are also chosen by the children and when the design has been aproved by the child it is digitally printed and heat sealed onto the Memory box. The designing of the Memory boxes is often used as a therapy by many bereavement services across the UK and every child in the family designs and receives their own Memory box so that the box belongs to them and only them.

We do not charge for our service as we are fully self funded.

Please note: Our large A4 wooden Memory boxes and bears are only supplied  to bereaved children under the age of 25yrs.. 

Our Memory Boxes are supplied to families through bereavement service referrals; we do not sell boxes directly.
