    Help the London Homeless Run: 10th of December 2019

    We are raising money to purchase and deliver warm blankets and waterproof ponchos to the homeless this Christmas.

    We all call this city our home, but many do not have the most simple basics the rest of us take for granted. With #helpthelondonhomeless run we aim to give the homeless a reason to smile this Christmas. The more money we raise the more good we can do.

    During last year's run, we realised that offering warmth, and protection from the rain was most helpful. Therefore this year, all monies raised will be spent on purchasing thermal blankets and waterproof ponchos, organising and then delivering them directly to the homeless.

    The quicker we raise the money and place our orders, the more we can buy. So we ask you to please donate as soon as possible. Here are examples of the Thermal Blanket and Ponchos we will be looking to buy.

    BACKGROUND

    At Secret Brunch we support CAUSES that help make the world a better place, or at least try to. Last Christmas we decided to take matters into our own hands. We raised money for 250 boxes of essentials. Then together with help of volunteers we roamed the streets of London and handed them out directly to the homeless.

    It was a heart warming experience, that left a lasting impact on those involved. Seeing the suffering first hand, on our own streets, and knowing that it continued long after we were gone. The homeless not only had to brave the cold, but also abuse and deprivation from simple basic needs we all often take for granted.

    Speaking to the homeless allowed us to see life and challenges from their perspectives. What they need the most during winter is warmth, and shelter from the rain. So this year instead of putting together a box of essentials, we are going get straight to the point and deliver each homeless a blanket and poncho.

    The more money we raise, the more homeless we can help. We will not stop until every single blanket and poncho is delivered.

    THE RUN

    We plan to do this year's run on Tuesday 10th of December. We chose a midweek date, because from our experience it is easier to catch the homeless out early. During weekends they tend to stay away till late, to avoid abuse from partygoers.

    The timings will be past 10pm, where we are more likely to see the homeless out on the streets.

    We will all meet at a central London location. All volunteers will then be split into groups covering different areas of London. We will then all hit the streets at the same time, delivering 1 x blanket and 1 x poncho per homeless.

    VOLUNTEERS

    Step 1 - Please donate as much or as little as you can. None of this will be possible without the money to buy blankets and ponchos.

    Step 2 - email us on enquiries@secretbrunch.com if only you are 100% sure, free and available to help deliver these items to the homeless. Please be aware of all the risks involved before committing. You will be walking the streets in the middle of the night. We cannot offer any supervision, protection or guarantee of safety.

Thank you for helping us bring a little warmth to 70 homeless 🙌.

      We are looking to place a FINAL order this Friday. So this is officially the FINAL chance to raise donations. Every pound raised will be spent on ponchos and blankets. We are budgeting just £100 towards a small van to bring everything to central London. All other costs of organising and marketing will be covered by Secret Brunch. Please help us get closer to our target.
