Story

Hello! 

Today I am asking you to support the Gatehouse, and incredible charity in the centre of Oxford for the homeless or vulnerably housed. 

An increasing number of people are facing really challenging living circumstances, which in turn can affect their physical or mental well being. The Gatehouse is doing some amazing work in trying to alleviate this by hosting them in a space where their basic needs can be met. As well as food and drinks, it offers people the chance to seek advice, socialise, and take part in a range of workshops. 

Having volunteered there for a year, I have been taken aback by the daily struggles some are facing and the challenging pasts of others. Yet they are always able to create a warm and kind atmosphere at the Gatehouse, showing immense gratefulness in receiving this service. 

So if you are able to make any kind of contribution, I really believe it will go a long way.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any generous support!
