Oct 4th 10am -11am Harvest for the Homeless

Wanted! Wanted! Wanted!  Good 2nd hand clothes, food, new underwears, hats and gloves!

The Tunbridge Wells Winter Shelter need to replenish its supplies ready for the forthcoming project, where people who have found themselves homeless for a variety of reasons have a chance to access bathing facitilities, new clothes, regular meals, medical care and a bed for the night.

They are looking for donations of clean and tidy men’s clothes – trousers, jeans, jumpers, coats, shoes and suits. There is a need for food staples – tins of meat, beans and soup, rice, pasta, pasta sauces, teabags, coffee, sugar as well as some luxury items – biscuits and chocolate bars, blankets, sleeping bags, small tents, torches and batteries.

PLEASE come to our harvest service with your items and listen about the work in Tunbridge Wells.

STAY – join us for a Soup & Roll lunch – and donate money to the work of the Street Teams

If you cannot join us on Sunday 4th October feel free to leave donated items in the cafe 10-1am any day in October – they will be very much appreciated.
