A very productive day.
A team from Molson Coors came down to HOPE House, our food and clothes bank in Anglesey Rd. The team worked hard sorting out donations ready to go out on the street this weekend. Our storage volunteers, Caz and Gale oversaw the operation in their Christmas jumpers!
John was presented with a cheque for £2500 from Molson Coors by Trevor John. After dinner at Carling Park, they all went on outreach around Burton.
Later in the day, 9 year old Abi-Rose brought food and clothes from a collection drive she had set up herself. She was given a tour of honour around our sorting container, food bank, clothes bank and toiletries bank.
Many thanks to Molson Coors employees, Sian, Olivia, Joe, Sam,Kasia, Mark, Momina, Lucinda, Rebecca, Simone, Kate and of course, Trevor.
Also to Abi-Rose.
Also to our Caz and Gale who work hard behind the scenes every week. ... See MoreSee Less

He then got to the plastic page with his picture and details on and he broke down and cried, then danced! ID can change a life. Without it you are anonymous, cannot get work, cannot get housed. cannot and officially do not exist. We have given out three birth certificates this week too. We got one in the record time of two days.
We have been called out five times in the last week by members of the public, concerned when seeing somebody outside because it is very cold now. One person was living under a hedge in a rural location. He is now in temporary accommodation in his home town. ... See MoreSee Less

Some of the audience told our two of charitable work they had done so it was a very interactive evening. ... See MoreSee Less
