About the centre
The SMART Prebend Centre is a well-used day centre for the homeless operating 365 days a year in Bedford, supporting those who sleep rough, are vulnerably housed and often face issues around social isolation and exclusion. The centre is a place of safety, meeting the basic needs of service users; providing food, warmth, water, a place to get clean and rest.
It costs £250,000 per year to keep the centre open, funded entirely through charitable donations and grants and the support of the local community. This year, the centre is also facing significant additional costs associated with an old building in need of urgent repairs.
In 2018 the Prebend Ball raised £10,000. In 2019, we’re aiming to double that! We need to raise £20,000 to help cover the centre running costs and repairs.
Masquerade Ball tickets cost just £55 per person and are available to buy until 31st August, but be quick as they are selling fast.
