With Christmas just around the corner and freezing temperatures sweeping the country, the issue of homelessness reaches crisis point which is why we wanted to support Midland Heart and their Birmingham Homeless Gift Appeal.
Together with other volunteers, donors and outreach workers, the appeal has resulted in 220 gift bags going to people accessing emergency accommodation this Christmas. Ian Williams donated hats and gloves for men, woman, girls and boys for the bags which also contain basic essentials such as food, hygiene products, towels and clothes.
This is a great cause and one we’re very proud to be involved in. In our everyday work we come into contact with people who need extra support and contributing to the Homeless Gift Appeal is a direct way in which we can make a practical difference – something that’s especially important at this time of year.
