Whilst we have been in the grips of the pandemic and unable to get out as much as we would normally, we have been quietly been beavering away behind the scenes… Here’s what the Team get up to…
We still continue to do weekly visits to First Base delivering food bank and essential items to those rough sleepers in need.
We supply essential items such as clothing and furniture to those that have been placed into accommodation and work with the council and other charities to assist them with their clients needs.
We have spent months sorting and clearing out all the generous donations from our houses, and other storage spaces and getting ready to move items to some bigger locations so that we can be ready to resume our outreach service when covid permits us to start operating again…
Whilst we cannot take any more clothing donations in from you until we can repurpose what we already have, we are still eternally grateful for all of your support.
If you would like to donate towards the purchase of essential items such as toiletries, sleeping bags, underwear, new duvets and other items that we need to buy from new please be assured that your monetary donations are gratefully received and will be used for these purposes.
In the meantime please continue to stay safe and well and keep an eye out for any of our “essential items required” posts.
Team: Paula Pattenden, Gemma Wright, Jonathan Lank, David Pattenden
