You can help us in many ways . . .
Morning volunteers would be most welcomed just now, November 2019. We need you on a Monday or Thursday morning any time from 7.45am to 10.00 am to help with breakfast, sandwiches, tidying away bedding and cleaning.
If you can help in the evening please email us first. 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 !
(Away from Christmas donations can get a bit thin)
The food bill alone is around £60 each night we open.
