I opened up Craftable’s emails this morning to find a message from Crowstone Engineering, a local firm I often see recommended on the Streetlife website.

The email says:

Hi Jen

Your organisation has been randomly selected to receive a charitable donation from our company as a small thank you to fellow street lifers for supporting us…

… [we] would like to make a BACS payment to Craftable.org.uk for £100.00 within the next few days…


May we congratulate you on this good luck and sincerely wish you the very best for your organisation in the future.


Kindest Regards




My heartfelt thanks, and I’m sure those of all our members, go to Crowstone Engineering for their generosity.
