We are a group of people that have been helping the homeless since 2013. We are raising money to help us help the homeless. More and more people are becoming homeless and are having to sleeping on the streets.
We will be going out every Sunday, we have the volunteers but need funding to keep us going.
We aim to raise as much money as we can, so we can help with providing everyday items that are needed. Most of us take for granted toothpaste, toothbrushes etc, whereas the homeless get such things as and when people donate.
We cook hot food and take it to the centre of the city. Most of the cost comes out of the volunteers pocket and therefore donations would be helpful, to help us provide a more varied menu. This will also help us to give food items for them to take away and eat at a later time.
We do rely on material donations but it would be nice for us to have a supply of tents and sleeping bags for those that are new on the street and not very often are these donated. A good stock to hand out when needed would be idea and more so now that winter is here.
We do need the funds all year round, but more so in winter, as you have the elements of the weather.
This personally means a lot to me, as it is helping people that need help and we will be very grateful for anything received.
