Cold Weather Shelter Tuesdays, January to March 2020

We open our door to the homeless shelter once again on Tuesday 21 January to Wednesday 31 March 2020. Every year, the generosity and kindness shown by the local volunteers and community has enabled the Parish to continue to provide a safe and warm environment for all our guests.   I ask you again this year, to support our shelter in any way you can, and we look forward to seeing old and new volunteers at Our Lady Help of Christians. If you want to find out more about the shelter, please contact, mobile 07852735741.

We are still happy to take in donations of clothes for men particularly, jeans, tracksuit bottoms, socks and underwear.
