Our container next to our food and clothes bank at First Base in Anglesey Rd has had an attempted break in!
It is used to drop off clothes donations and for sorting clothes.
We are a volunteer organisation working to help others.
This is despicable.
We will be checking the CCTV footage to see who did this!
Luckily only the combination lock was damaged and will need replacing. ... See MoreSee Less

We are getting more and more reports of homeless people in trouble of one kind or another at the moment. Our volunteers were out until 1.30am this morning and have been out again today in the pouring rain.
Unfortunately all to many incidents end at A+E.
When will homelessness become a thing of the past? ... See MoreSee Less

We made links with The Scientia Academy today. John did a presentation on homelessness and poverty in Burton. There were some excellent questions asked after the presentation (just look at all the hands in the air). In fact there were so many that due to time restrictions, classroom time will be given to write down a list of further questions that will be sent to John to answer.
He gave the academy some ladies sanitary products. Period poverty does exist and we do all we can to combat it.
All local schools are welcome to apply (just ask).
The young folks will be having their Harvest Festival for Burton HOPE this year.

Many thanks to Martin and the guys who work for the Burton Market (ESBC) for setting us up with a huge market stall to run our Market Place outreach while the Statutes were on.
It allowed us to supply all of our usual services effectively. Support, food parcels, clothing, sleeping bags etc etc and we could serve food and hot drinks under it. ... See MoreSee Less

Burton HOPE had it's first inspection for food hygiene/safety by the council's Environmental Health Officers, today.
Caz, our Storage Coordinator and I met the officers at our main food and clothes bank on Anglesey Rd. We explained our systems and how our organisation works. We then visited our unit that we work out of at weekends in Burton Market Place.
Caz and I were delighted that we got the equivalent of a top 5 Star rating for both sites. To say we were both amazingly proud is an understatement.
I would like to thank each and every one of our volunteers for their hard word in making Burton HOPE the success that it is.
Volunteering for Burton HOPE is not the easy option. We do so many different things in so many areas all related to relieving poverty. It is hard work and takes real commitment.
