We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Homelessness Day Collection in Jan. £1,475. 65 was raised.
We would also like to thank those who supported the Jazz night last Saturday, and David Barlow and the band, who gave their services for free. This allowed us to raise £1,100.
The money raised by these events has enabled us to fund a group of clients of the Homeless Centre to go on a conservation work course. They will have the opportunity to learn new practical and social skills. For some it will be their first opportunity to leave Southend and experience a totally different environment. We hope it will build self-confidence and self-belief in those taking part.
Thank you again for your continuing support for ‘Serving the Homeless’.
