If anyone has a warm, winter coat or warm boots you no longer need, I am collecting for two homeless charities: GlassDoor and Restart, with whom our church, St Columba’s, is involved.
They are especially keen on ladies’ coats (size 12-20) and ladies’ boots (size 5-8) but I am sure any appropriate warm clothing will be most welcome.
If you perhaps prefer to make a monetary donation, I am also collecting for a third homeless charity called NightShelter. This charity, through St Columba’s and other churches in London, provide a freshly cooked supper and a warm, safe place to sleep, on 22 Sunday nights during the colder seasons. For them, a monetary donation is best in helping meet the complex catering needs.
Any donations you may have will be gladly welcomed. Please drop them off at the school in the first week back, 7-11 January.
With many thanks,
