    Story

    We are a team of people just like You.
    We work separate jobs and have our own family's but give our evenings to support the local community 'The Homeless'
    We provide warm clothes, tents, sleeping bags and warm food, But.
    Most importantly a friendly smile and a listening ear,
    The people we help have a variety of reasons as to why they are there.
    We are all one redundancy or Illness too close to being there ourselves.
    They vary in age from 19-85. War heroes, family breakups, disability, pregnancy and so many more.
    We are asking for support so we can expand what we offer.
    Currently we are covering
    Rochester and Strood 24 known Homeless
    Gillingham 30 plus Homeless

    We are asking for donations so we can go further from our hometowns and help more people.

      With 12 days to go until the end of our fundraiser we are at £400. Thank you so much to the 21 that have donated. You know who you are and we are eternally grateful. As it says these donations will be spent wholely on sleeping bags and camping stoves/gas for the homeless. We get so many lovely donations of clothes and duvets and without all forms of support we could not be there to help those most in need. Thanks once again. Amber.
