Tony Miller MBE: October 2017
Following our recent Harvest Festival, we have received the following letter from Tony Miller at London's Whitechapel Mission:
"I write to express our grateful thanks to members of Aylesbury Methodist Church for their generous donations of Food, Clothing and £80 which will help to maintain and further the mission's work of supporting people who are homeless.
Winter is with us once again. The low temperatures we have experienced recently make life even more uncomfortable for those who live on the streets of London.
As always, we open our doors at 6.00am; offering hot drinks, a full breakfast, showers, clothing and a warm welcome to all who come through our doors.
Demand always increases when the weather is cold so your gift is even more welcome as we seek to continue satisfying the needs of our homeless family into the new Year."
