BEXLEY WINTER SHELTER RAISED AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF £869.28 AT SAINSBURY’S BEXLEYHEATH
Some of the marvellous volunteers from the Bexley Winter Shelter
Bexley Winter Shelter (https://www.bexleywintershelter.org.uk) is a Christian based charity operating in the London Borough of Bexley. Its aim is to provide warmth, nourishment and compassion to homeless men during the coldest months of the year. We do this through the generosity of churches and other organisations in the Borough which allow us to use their premises to provide support and temporary accommodation. All helpers are volunteers drawn from within and without churches across Bexley. We partner with Housing Justice, the CAB, the council, health care professionals and a local charity – Cornerstone Recovery through Christ (https://cornerstonebexley.org) – helping those with addictions & homelessness. Customers of Sainsbury’s Bexleyheath were very generous in supporting us just before Christmas and donated an amazing amount of money – £869.28 – on only one Saturday. This money will go directly to helping the homeless in Bexley. So far this year, we have been able to help more people than previously and with the assistance of No First Night Out (http://nfno.org.uk) have seen more housed and housed earlier than in previous years. However, we could only have done this through the generosity of the people of Bexley. To you, Bexley Winter Shelter say THANK YOU.
Serena Ferris, Customer and Trading Manager of Sainsbury’s Bexleyheath said that the money raised will be a great help to the Bexley Winter Shelter and serve the community.
