Jonathan Smith is raising money for Change Please Foundation

Trekking For Change Please Foundation

My story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

This year I will be raising money for the Change Please Foundation by undertaking a number of trekking challenges within the UK and Abroad. This includes Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Mount Kilimanjaro.

Since 2010, homelessness has doubled in the UK. Now, over 4,000 people sleep rough every night.. Change Please believes that the nation’s love of coffee is so strong - it could be just what we need to end homelessness once and for all.

The average Londoner treats themselves to two cups every single day. Demand is rising – by the end of the decade the number of UK coffee outlets is set to hit 21,000, creating over 100,000 jobs. Despite this, the industry is facing a huge skills shortage, not just in the UK, but around the world.

If the homeless community addressed this shortage - homelessness could become a thing of the past. Change Please is empowering the homeless community by training them to be baristas. We provide full barista training, jobs paying London Living Wage and support with housing, bank accounts and mental wellbeing.

They're a social enterprise staffed by the homeless, to help the homeless, because really good coffee doesn't just taste good - it does good too.

Any support would be much appreciated
