Donations in 2011

Posted by in Our Supporters on | , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The end of 2011 brought a number of very welcome donations of both money, food and clothes. We are truly grateful to all those who have been kind enough to think of us and the guys and gals that we seek to help. And no matter how small ‘every little helps’ as we have so often been told by a certain retailer:

• Holy Angels Church for £225
• Canford Magna Churches for £105
• Buckland Road Baptist Church for £31
• Broadstone Methodist Church for £50
• Liverpool Victoria for food, toiletries, clothing, footwear and cash collection
• Kellogg’s for breakfast cereals
• TwoToo for fleece scarves
• Holy Angels Concert raising £364
• Lantern Church for £350
• St George’s Church, Oakdale for £100
• Various individuals for donations totalling £290
• Church of the Transfiguration Concert raising £400
• Various individuals for donations of food and gifts for Christmas

Some of the money raised is going towards providing a cooked breakfast at The Fisherman Café in Poole for those who are rough sleeping. We may not have had the snow that we had in 2010 but the weather has still been very uncomfortable with rain and high winds, so a hot meal to start the day is a very literal lifeline for these people. A big THANK YOU to The Fisherman Café for again working with Routes to Roots to make this happen.
