Story

Hackney Night Shelter Christmas Appeal 2023

This holiday season, join our united community in making an impact on the lives of individuals experiencing homelessness. At Hackney Night Shelter, our vision extends beyond the walls of the shelter. Our Christmas Appeal 2023 is about collective action and ensuring that the shelter remains open for those in need, and to help us operate this winter in an extra location, offering 10 extra emergency beds when the temperatures drop below 0 degrees.

Our Goal:

This year, our mission is clear: Raise £50,000 to ensure that Hackney Night Shelter remains open 365 days a year, providing short-term accommodation and hot meals while preparing for future expansion and a focus on our emergency winter initiative.

Winter Initiative:

When temperatures drop to 0 degrees, our winter initiative will come into play. We will open up temporary emergency accommodation, offering 10 beds a night to prevent people from sleeping out in freezing weather. Your support ensures that those experiencing homelessness will have a safe and warm place to stay, especially during the harshest

Past Success:

Thanks to your support in previous years, we achieved a remarkable milestone last year. We raised £50,000, enabling us to increase our bed capacity from 20 to 26, and this year we're expanding our services to include emergency winter accommodation.

Why Your Support Matters:

- Immediate Relief in Winter: Your contribution ensures that individuals in need have access to emergency winter accommodation, preventing them from sleeping out in freezing temperatures.

- Year-Round Shelter: The funds contribute to keeping Hackney Night Shelter open 365 days a year, ensuring that help is available no matter the season.

- Longer-Term Support: Your generosity facilitates longer-term support, helping individuals find stable, lasting accommodation, offering them a path to independence.

- Community Responsibility: In a time when government support falls short, it's up to us, as a united community, to stand up and provide support where it's needed most.


How You Can Help:

- Donate: Your financial support is essential for Hackney Night Shelter's continuous operation and growth.


- Spread the Word: Share the message about our Christmas Appeal within your community and social networks.


- Volunteer: Consider giving your time to support our operations directly.
