Ho Ho Homeless at Christmas?

£2,757 of £400 goal

Raised by 90 people in 45 months
My boys and I met a homeless man called Kevin recently (I'd seen him a few times before, on the bridge at Brewery Wharf in Leeds, just near Oracle). I offered him some money. He refused at first, telling me it was too much... I insisted and then he did the nicest thing. He wrote a Christmas card for me and my boys. Thank you Kevin! It's on the mantelpiece, see you soon!

Here's what I'd like to do...
It would be amazing if we could raise a bit of cash to buy some much needed items to support the homeless people that live in our community. We'll have these assembled into packs, gift wrapped and distributed to the homeless and rough sleepers. We'll use local support agencies to help us get the gifts out there.

If you could contribute a few quid then we'd be pleased to take it!
We're also taking donations of new clothing, hats, scarves, gloves etc. These can be dropped off at The Yorkshire Mafia offices at 1 Brewery Place, Leeds, LS8 1BH

Best wishes and Merry Christmas to all.

Hello a small gesture for a worthy cause. This money was collected by colleagues at Calbee in Leeds instead of sending Christmas Cards. Merry Christmas
