Make a Difference

financial donations

Every penny of every donation goes directly to helping local people and even a modest amount can make a real, immediate difference to someone’s life. 

For example… 

  • £5 buys an essential toiletries kit

  • £10 buys ingredients for our volunteers to make a batch of eight of tasty meals

  • £30 buys a sleeping bag, foil blanket and emergency night provisions for one of our guests

  • £50 would make a significant contribution to our weekly drop-in rental

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
