When we are open you can help us in many ways . . .
At present, October 2021, we are closed.
We are not sure when we shall re-open. When we do we plan to provide an evening mel and a chance for people to socialise. In the meantime we are supporting Helping Hands, The Way Ahead project at the Salvation Army and the LWS Night Shelter
If you are interested in volunteering please email us first ,so that we can arrange a proper introduction when you first come to visit us. . There are a number of different roles to suit different people's inclinations and experience. It is best to come along one evening to explore further (without pressure to come again!). You would be joining a stable experienced group who enjoy and are blessed by their time at the shelter.
Please make contact. Thanks.
Money is always welcome WHEN WE ARE OPEN !
(Away from Christmas donations can get a bit thin)
The food bill alone is around £60 each night we open.
A Hepatitis B vacination for a volunteer is £135.
Total running costs average out at £150 a night (just £5 per client!).
