Homeless United

Home » News » Homeless United

Whilst our harvest giving last week went to help London's homeless, former Manchester United stars Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs were doing their bit to help Manchester's homeless. The couple had bought a listed building they planned converting into a small luxury hotel. However, it has become a squat for the homeless and to the delight of the people involved, the pair have agreed they can all stay through the cold winter months. So well done to the United pair.
Meantime, back at AMC, Peter Watkins who looks after our liaison with the homeless charity said, "Thank you for the amazing response to the Harvest Appeal for Whitechapel Mission — the amount was unbelievable! It has now been collected along with goods from St.Martha's Church, Tring. The generosity of people never ceases to amaze me. The need is ongoing though and so the Whitechapel Trustees are looking to appoint someone to help them raise £1,000,000 to continue and sustain their much needed help to the capital's vulnerable."
