A bridge between those who want to give and those in need

“We have seen that it is vital that anything we give is of the highest quality: if someone has no choice, they must have the best!”

“The focus on the Besom is and always has been on those who have something to give, but are looking for a way to do so. Besom encourages involved giving out of a sense of love, as opposed to duty, and offers people the opportunity to think creatively about how they would like to give.” Read more…
