112 Signatures Goal: 500

Minnies friends has been in the heart of Loughborough, offering a warm welcome to the local community and surrounding area. They have served countless vulnerable people, providing them with hot meals, packed lunches, hot drinks, clothes, guidance and company.

Set up in 2010 by Carol Phillips to help the homeless and people with drug and alcohol addiction to make sure that no one went hungry and got the help and advice they need.

Carol handed her charity over as her health was poor, but after doing so the trustees decided to change the name to 'the drop in'. This has devastated carol as Minnies friends was set up in memory of her daughter Donna phillips, nicknamed minnie, who sadly passed away in 2005 due to Alcohol addiction.

There is no reason to change the name so please support us to stop the name change.

Absolutely disgusted that they want to change minnies name . Minnies is a very special name and they had helped loads of people I've done some voluntary work with my mum there and we loved every minute of it . Everybody that volunteered there did there bit and .minnies mean a lot to Carol and Cheryl and to everybody who knew Donna so do not ever change the name MINNIES

    This charity is named Minnie's friends for a reason. Disrespectful to change the name and a damn right awful thing to do! Especially when it's on memory of some one
