Make a Difference

financial donations

Our Go Fund Me Page is currently down for maintenance, as we prepare new fundraising targets to support the Winter Night Shelter.

The Winter Night Shelter will cost around £1100 per month to run, so we will be actively fundraising over the next few months.

Every penny of every donation goes directly to helping local people and even a modest amount can keep our facility going and make a real difference to lives.


other donations

We also need:

  • Clean duvets, pillows and sleeping bags

  • Seasonally appropriate, practical clothes and shoes, especially for men

  • Men’s underwear & socks

  • Toiletries – travel sizes are especially useful

  • Food - mainly long-lasting foods such as tinned meats & tuna, microwaveable pouches of rice and treats like chocolate biscuits too! We have limited cooking facilities at our drop-in, but our volunteers prepare some wonderful meals at home which we reheat at the centre

Please contact Lewes Open Door before planning to drop off any donation at Westgate Chapel, as sometimes we have no space to store larger bulky items such as duvets.
