Christmas Giving. Beverley would like to say a huge thank you for your generous donations of items and money to help those who are Street Homeless.
Your gifts given with love before Christmas have provided one-man tents, sleeping bags, rollup mats, thermal underwear, flasks and toiletries for those sleeping outside – plus ingredients for hot food cooked in bulk which is distributed when needed.
There was enough money left to create a small fund which will enable us to meet ongoing needs throughout the year – so heartfelt thanks!”
During January 45.6 Kilos of food and £20 was donated to the foodbank. In this cold weather when children may not get meals in school please give as you can so people don’t go hungry.
