As with most of us Covid 19 has thrown major issues to our lives and spanners in our plans all throughout 2020. This is the same with the annual 3 course warm Christmas meal held at central station for North East Homeless. Central station are unable to host this year due to pandemic.
North East Homeless however is not letting that spanner stop them from providing much needed Christmas joy to those in real need in our local community this Christmas eve. The charity and their volunteers will be out on Christmas eve providing warm Christmas meals which to many will be the only Christmas gift that they receive. The meals will be a turkey or vegetarian Christmas dinner with all the trimmings prepared by their chief and volunteers at their Fish Quay Hub where they will also be serving food.
‘Every year we also give a xmas bag with practical but personal Xmas items for all our Street Friends’ Emma from the charity states.
Due to the charity has ‘significantly been unable to get out to fundraise’ throughout lockdown and for months of 2020 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.
