We have fundraised for the local homeless in our North East community over the last six years providing warm meals over winter. Homelessness however is not just a problem over Christmas, it is a problem all year round.
With the issue of homelessness seeing a significant increase since the pandemic it really is now more than ever important for our local community to come together as one.
The pandemic has caused a huge number of job losses which unfortunately looks only set to continue, it has shown us and given us a new appreciation on how close we all are to being homeless and reliance on food packages, it can happen to anyone.
Due to this year the charity face a ‘significant demand' in services which only continues to grow. They ran through their now depleted reserves and face one of the most challenging periods they have ever had to face. The charity have noticed that usually it is one person who would use their service for and individual pack of food but that has changed to people needing a family pack to take home to their children and partner too.
The charity had to adapt during lockdown and since by delivering a takeaway service a service which is now averaging 150 warm meals every night. They make weekly food parcels as well as supplying books, puzzles, games, craft packs and colouring books to help with loneliness isolation and boredom and the charity help those with mental health issues which has also seen a significant use in the services.
Our campaign, now in its sixth year and relies on your support. Our aim has always been to give a Christmas meal however as this year is different for everyone. Your much needed donation (or donations if you are able to donate more than once) will this time help the charity provide warm meals and parcels on the winter and beyond.
We have also added an option above so you can donate a fiver once a month, which may not sound a lot but will make a big difference to those in need in our community all year round!
We are also looking for your help to grow our campaign and help as many people are possible in our local North East community.
