Anne, Wendy and Daisy manned a fundraising stall for us at Tutbury Market. They had a lot of fun and raised a whopping £150 for us.
Many thanks to Tutbury Market for the stall and to our intrepid trio for manning it, also Anthony and Thistley Meadow for the use of the gazebo. ... See MoreSee Less

PERIOD POVERTY !
Linda and Roy from Period Power delivered a large amount of sanitary products to day, ready for us to distribute around the Burton Schools. We do this every year to combat what has become known as "period poverty". Girls really do have time off school during periods because their families cannot afford sanitary products........
Some of our secondary and junior schools have already put in requests and others will be contacting us in the very near future.

Another week of hardship for those on the streets and those living below the breadline.
We were called out to a man sleeping on an old damp mattress.
Our food bank has been topped up thanks to some very generous donations.
Our clothes bank continues to provide good clothing to help folks keep dignity and keep their feet warm and dry.
We have had to interpret a gentleman from Poland's needs.
The Burton and East Staffordshire Homeless Partnership met this week to continue to make plans to co-ordinate help to rough sleepers.
Our sessions in the Market Place seem to get busier..... We'll see what tonight brings.
Thankyou to all of our volunteers and donors for making this possible. ... See MoreSee Less
