Rough Sleeper Needs

18th January 2017: Ruth & Peter Watkins
Back home  /  News  /  Rough Sleeper Needs

Calais's now dismantled 'Jungle' has had an adverse effect on London's rough sleepers. In the Autumn the Whitechapel Mission normally receives vast quantities of food from Church harvests, mainly from the London Churches and those in easy reach like our own. This year, the London churches were directed to collect food donations for the 'Jungle' in Calais, leaving Whitechapel very short of goods to see them through the winter. Making it worse is the rise in rough sleepers turning to the Mission for a meal. This has already stretched Whitechapel's reduced resources. They therefore find themselves very short of basics so early in the winter.
So we are therefore asking for your help and on Sunday 22nd January Peter and I will be in the vestibule to receive any item from the list below you feel you can donate. Also, should you find, after receiving Christmas gifts, you have one warm jumper too many or surplus gloves and socks you can add to their depleted clothing store. Your budget might only allow you to buy one tin of beans but every gift is welcome. Thank you in advance.
THE MOST WANTED LIST: Warm jumpers, Socks, Gloves, Baked Beans, Plum Tomatoes, Sugar, Biscuits, Squash Please buy the cheapest to make your money go further – supermarket own brands are great . Click herefor the full list.
