The Night Shelter is now over for another season and we have been part of this amazing scheme that has given a group of very vulnerable people a literally life-transforming chance to move on. Whilst in the 3-month long scheme, they not only receive food and shelter but access to a whole host of other services, health care, help with job applications and pursuing housing.
Many of our guests got jobs during this period and were going to work from the ‘shelter’ each day until such time as they could get into their own accommodation. Of the 31 guests who benefitted over the period it was running, 26 are now housed and progressing with their lives. Please continue to pray for them, life is not always straightforward.
Our guests talked of the care and kindness they received from venue to venue, some had never experienced that before and all were impacted by it in a big way.
So to every volunteer who helped on the shifts and to everyone who donated money, supplies, skills and time, a HUGE thank you, this would not happen without you!
