Every time I walk through Oxford I notice the number of homeless people who are on the streets, and so this year I have decided to cycle the Bike Oxford ride to raise money for The Gatehouse, a charity that gives homeless people in Oxford somewhere to go.
This is what they say about themselves:
'The Gatehouse has been operating as a local drop in café for Oxford City homeless and the vulnerably housed for thirty years.
The Aims of the charity are: “To relieve poverty and hardship among homeless and needy people in or near the City of Oxford and, in particular, by the provision of a drop-in centre.”
On a more personal level this is achieved by welcoming the homeless and vulnerable and providing a place where companionship, dignity, and refreshment can be found in a warm, safe and therapeutic environment. All services offered by The Gatehouse to its Guests are provided free of charge.'
