How you can help

The Cellar is one of the two branches of the Warehouse Christian Trust, a Godalming based charity (Registration Number 277631). We rely largely on volunteers to operate and to fund the work we do.

Amongst those who have helped us with grants are The Community Foundation for Surrey, Bishop of Guildford’s Community Fund, The Dora Fedoruk Memorial Fund, Godalming Town Council, Erica Leonard Trust, Waverley Voluntary Partnership, Godalming Lions and Godalming Woolsack Rotary, MJ Hindley Trust, Bucknill Masonic Lodge, The Peter Caudle Memorial Trust, The Guildford & District Construction Industry Training Group, local churches and many, many more…our sincere thanks go to them and from all of those who come to the Cellar, will be forever grateful.

Ways you can help

Can you spare a few hours a week on a regular basis to help in the café? Volunteer helpers are needed to free trained staff for ‘listening’ and other support duties.

Can you help by organising or helping at fund raising events?

Become a ‘Friend of the Cellar’ or receive a regular newsletter – contact  info@thecellarcafe.co.uk. Promote the work of The Cellar at you local community group or church.

Come and visit the Cellar on a regular basis and find out more about our activities.

Make a cake and bring it along for sale at the Cellar.

Consider making a regular donation – Gift aided if appropriate to the Warehouse Christian Trust (charity no.277631) Cheques can be made out to The Cellar or consider making a regular donation by monthly standing order to this vital work. £5 per month gift aided would give long term security.

You can also donate through ‘Peoples Fundraising’ – click here to make your donation!

Consider using a special birthday or Christmas to suggest to family and friends not to buy presents but to make a donation to the Cellar or consider making a bequest.

Consider running a sponsored event such as the London Marathon, the Great South Run or doing a local event.

Leaving a gift to the Cellar is a unique way to mark your life. The Cellar is there for the isolated and lonely – to those with mental health issues and to those who welcome a non-threatening environment.

Of course, leaving a legacy gift is not a decision that can be made lightly and without due consideration.

But if you do choose to leave a gift to the Cellar in your Will, not only will you be helping those who we welcome but also the Cellar itself to continue our work in our Town to provide warmth and comfort for those in need – people with drug or alcohol problems, the unemployed and homeless, or those suffering with stress or serious illness – you will also be supporting our vision to ensure that those who need us will never be turned away.
