We have now safely delivered all of your kind donations to two Cambridge charities supporting people facing homelessness.
Thank you so much to everyone who donated – we were absolutely overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone who was kind enough to bring a gift of warm clothing, food, toiletries, sleeping gear and other gifts for the homeless and those in vulnerable housing in the Cambridge area.
We collected the donated items in our office reception area, and at a collection point in Swaffham Prior Primary School. In total we had more than 20 bags of items to take to take to both Jimmy’s Night Shelter and Cambridge’s Wintercomfort charities in time for Christmas.
We were completely humbled by the support of our local community, who have exceeded all expectations this year with their generosity. We filled two cars with boxes of donations this week and delivered them to the two charities.
This is the third year we have run appeals for these two local charities and we have been very proud to help. Both Jimmy’s Night Shelter and Wintercomfort do great work supporting people experiencing homelessness in our area, providing them with shelter, warm clothes, hot food and access to other vital facilities.
We think the work both charities do all year round is amazing, but we know that winter is a particularly dangerous time to have to sleep on the streets. That’s why we chose Jimmy’s Night Shelter and Winter Comfort as our Christmas appeal charities again this year.
