Just some info on help the homeless north west
we are a small self funded group
we try various things to raise money to help us with the work we do and do often get help from others which is a massive help.but we are running very low now and esp at this time of year its more cold and wet and we need to be out there more providing help to the homeless.
over a year ago we set out to provide aid (food, drink, clothing & warmth) to all the homeless people in bolton..and we have grown stronger an stronger.we have been out upto 3 times a week providing hot meal and drinks
we get donations of clothing and which we hand out to the homeless

we have grown quite close to our homeless friends and lots just come for a chat with us..we have often been told we have saved some people for harm just for having a chat with them and someone to listen.as they felt so low they couldn't see an end to the life they was living but just a chat and letting them know there is support and help out there and things will change has helped them see that there is hope for the future.

when people have been homed we have furnished flats for them and gave them the best start we can,a few have since been back to us to offer a helping hand when are out feeding the homless.which is amazing
we also help people in need like food parcels gas and elec and helping furnish flats when people have been homed.
we have been out on ventures to give to those in need at different times of the year and I've found that the majority of people are only interested in helping during the Christmas period, which isn't ideal but any help, regardless of when it is given, is appreciated.

we are trying to make £2000 to help us carry on the work we do,Let's get together and raise money to buy food and sleeping bags,tents,hats ,gloves,socks,and everyday things we take for granted for those who won't be under a roof, warm, surrounded by loving family, with lots of food & drink!
