The Christmas eve event is officially returning to Newcastle central station this Christmas eve, after not being able to run last year with Covid restrictions.
Central station will open its doors to North East Homeless this Christmas eve and their amazing team built up of volunteers will be on hand to serve the people in real need in our community some warm food and Christmas joy.
For just £5 your donation will provide a warm Christmas eve dinner to someone less fortunate, for many it may be the only Christmas gift they get - show you care this Christmas. If able, you can make more than one donation this Christmas to ensure the charity can help even more people this winter.
The charity has been hit with a surge in unprecedented demand due to the pandemic, job losses, cuts in universal credit among other things which has seen many people who never through they would be reliant on food banks relying on North East Homeless services.
As well as providing warm food and a great sense of community bringing people together on Christmas eve, surrounded by friendly faces and friendly conversation the team of volunteers will be on hand giving those who need it advice and there will also be volunteer orchestra to provide entertainment for this enchanting Christmas eve event.
‘Every year we also give a Xmas bag with practical but personal Xmas items for all our Street Friends’ Emma from the charity states.
In the last 18 months the charity has ‘significantly been unable to get out to fundraise’ which has placed a strain on them.
She goes on to state ‘Due to Covid-19 we are seeing a significant increase in numbers and especially people who are new to the benefits system. People who have lost their jobs because of the impact of Covid-19 are very much in poverty and at risk of Homelessness. The face of homelessness is changing once again and we desperately need support to allow us to react to these changes and give practical, reactive and common sense support.’
North East Homeless work hard all year around providing survival equipment, homeless support, hot food and a chance to meet and talk with the outreach support across the region. This year more than ever they need help and support to enable their work to continue and help the vulnerable in our community and therefore we have introduced an option as well as a one off donation to make a small monthly donation to help all year round.
Your fiver donation may not sound like a lot but the charity are amazing for making every penny count and should the fundraising total more than they need on the day it will provide the below for service users this winter..
Many people choose to donate top this great cause rather than by Christmas cards (which are usually in the bin on boxing day) but either way for the same price as a high street coffee you are able to make someone’s Christmas and beyond.
