From The President

Home » News » From The President

No, we don't mean that President or President-Elect. We mean the President of the Methodist Conference. His visit to the Whitechapel Mission for London's homeless coincided with a thank you letter we received for our harvest festival donations of food and toiletries. Yet the President found that with rough sleeping and homelessness rising, food prices rising, budgets falling, with demand for their services up by a third on last year, their normal harvest stockpiles of things like baked beans and razors were already running low. The Mission depends entirely on voluntary donations for their vital work of feeding, showering, clothing and guiding the increasing number of homeless.
