As we approach Christmas, public generosity reaches new highs as we recognise our own family situation and those less fortunate than ourselves.
We have been overwhelmed by the number of shoebox care packages that have been donated so far this Christmas and whilst we thank everyone for their gifts, we have no further need at this time as we have sufficient to last quite some time beyond Christmas.
The Wellingborough Homeless Forum would like to give a special shout out to Thomas Luckins who organised a raffle to win an iPhone and used all the proceeds to buy a van load of sleeping bags and warm beanie hats, scarves and gloves. Those will be distributed via the Wellingborough night shelter to those in need .. Thanks Thomas.
Our primary aims are to provide a safe, warm hospitable space to eat a nourishing evening meal and breakfast, to sleep and to socialise. Our guests do appreciate what we offer.
Whilst all gifts received come from the heart, there are some gifts that are valued more than others down to need at any given time.
If you would like to make a donation to the night shelter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get current information about areas where donations would be helpful to our aims.
