At No5 we currently receive some statutory funding to deliver part of our services, but we largely rely on fundraising and donations to enable us to continue supporting young people in Reading.
No5 does not currently receive any statutory core funding for the work it does. We rely on fundraising and donations to enable us to stay open and to continue supporting young people and those around them.

Reading Community Lottery
Buy tickets and choose No5 as your local charity in the Reading Community Lottery. There is a draw every Saturday night. Tickets cost £1 per week.
The important bit! From every £1 ticket sold as your chosen cause, No5 will receive 50p of the 60p (the remaining 10p will be distributed to other local good causes). To put this in perspective when you play the National Lottery 25% goes to good causes – so this is more than double the ticket percentage to good causes.
Every ticket has a 1 in 50 chance of winning a prize. Each ticket has six numbers and each number is between 0 and 9. Every Saturday night draw a six-digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2 to 6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all six and you win the jackpot of £25K!
Co-op Community Fund
Become a member of the Co-op for £1 and choose No5 Young People as your cause to support.
When you buy selected Co-op products and services, 2p for every £1 you spend goes into your Co-op Membership account. And Co-op will give the same amount to support No5. So you can support young people while buying your groceries at your local Co-op store. Join Today!
You can spend the rewards you earn on most things you buy from us, not just Co-op products.
You can also choose to donate your rewards.
Please let us know if you are organising a fundraising event so we can do what we can to support you in your efforts to support us!
If you would like more information on how you can donate or support No5 please contact Carly Newman, Operations and Relationships Manager.
