Sandes Mission was born in the heart of a young woman, Elise Sandes in 1869. Her burden was the welfare and salvation of young soldiers. Elise saw the social exclusion and neglect they faced and opened up her mother’s home for meetings to help and encourage them. The work was so successful that she opened Sandes Homes all over the world and she eventually became known as the ’Mother of the British Army’. Today there are four Centres in the UK, welcoming families and personnel of all ranks. They provide good food, wholesome recreation and quiet areas for people to unwind and relax. We are faithful to the vision of Elise Sandes to create real homes and a place to find love and care without any preconditions. This is a practical witness of God’s abundant grace and mercy and it builds friendships through which we can share our faith. We offer friendship and a listening ear to soldiers who, today are facing incredible challenges. When they are deployed, we still try to encourage them through a parcel ministry. The families of serving personnel are also our concern. Many wives are living far from home and feel lonely and anxious when their husbands are away. We offer them a secure, restful environment. Youngsters can enter Military Service at 16 and the Army put great emphasis on their protection and welfare. We are privileged to be part of that care where we help address some of the needs, becoming surrogate parents to many and a listening ear to those going through the rigours of basic training. We care for people unconditionally regardless of beliefs. People are drawn by the good food and gentle Christian ambience. Being greeted by a smile and knowing that we really care is so important. For those interested, we hold Bible Studies, Prayer Meetings, Childrens’ Clubs and distribute Christian literature. We work closely with the Chaplaincy who can use Sandes as a focal point for outreach and fellowship. It would be very difficult for an Evangelical Christian organisation to start this work today, but Sandes has a unique relationship of trust with the Military, built over many generations of faithful service. To ensure we can care for this and future generations, we need your help. So please remember the work of Sandes and help us maintain these little sanctuaries of peace and hope. Thank-you for your kind consideration.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
