Night Shelter

This year we would like to make an appeal for ‘A little bag of winter kindness’.  Some of the items may not be essential but definitely would be appreciated.

For ladies:
Small makeup palettes, mascara, softie bras S/M, knickers, female wipes/antibacterial wipes, hairbrushes, moisturiser and deodorant.

For men:
Razors, shaving cream, hairbrushes, moisturiser, deodorant and aftershave.

Vital needs for all:
Hand warmers, hats, gloves, warm socks, antibacterial wipes, plasters, foot cream, deep heat, toothbrush and toothpaste, toilet paper or tissues and any coupons for food/bogofs.

We would also like to ask for very cheap MOBILE Phones. Many street homeless people cannot contact their family, so this Christmas we would like to give them the opportunity by offering a free mobile to ring home.
The phones can be new or second hand but must be very basic.

If you could help with any of these items, please mark bags with ‘Winter Kindness’ and drop them off at our office.

Many thanks from the Sanctuary Night Shelter
