Clothing provided for the homeless

Clothing, together with blankets and sleeping bags, was handed out to the homeless by vice-chairman Martin Thacker and marketing manager Bridget Ball on Christmas Eve.

An appeal was made for people to donate clothing and other suitable items and there was a great response.

Martin said: “We were overwhelmed by the generosity of people who really stepped up to support the homeless this Christmas. The amount of items we received was amazing so we would like to thank everyone concerned.”

Bridget added: “Supporting the homeless is something wwhich is very close to my heart and it was great to be able to give warm clothes, blankets and sleeping bags to those who need them, together with food and hot drinks.”

The remaining clothing was given to two organisations who help the homeless, to be distributed over Christmas and during the winter months.
