Glass Door offers shelter, advice and support to those affected by homelessness.  They are open to all, space permitting, and do not require guests to fill in long complicated forms to gain access to their services.  They are an independent charity and avoid seeking funding which would restrict their open access policy.

As you can imagine their fundraising has been seriously impacted by the pandemic.  Chelsea Design Quarter will be passing on 100% of proceeds from the raffle and we really hope you will help us to support Glass Door by entering our raffle.

Chelsea Design Quarter interviewed Glass Door CEO, Lucy Abraham about the challenges they have faced in 2020 and how they have adapted to restrictions and demands.  You can read the interview here.

Raffle Tickets are £5 each.  They are being sold via Just Giving: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/chelsea-design-quarter

PLEASE NOTE: It is essential entrants follow the instructions on the Just Giving page and forward their confirmation e-mail to chelseadesignquarter@gmail.com
The draw will take place live via Zoom at the George Smith showroom on 26th November.
