Written by Chris Harris on December 16, 2019
Bloor Homes South Midlands is calling on people to donate their unwanted warm coats, shoes, sleeping bags and duvets to help the homeless keep warm this winter.
Collection points have been set up at sales centres at the national housebuilder’s housing developments. Donations from these developments will be taken to Northampton Hope Centre, a local charity working to improve the lives of those affected by poverty or homelessness.
Donations will be taken to Northampton Hope Centre, Winter Night Shelter, Bedfordshire, Aylesbury Homeless Action Group and Homeless Oxfordshire.
An estimated 320,000 people are homeless in the UK, with over 4,000 people bedding down on the streets each night. As such, Northampton Hope Centre has asked for the following items for men, women and children: coats, shoes, thermals and waterproofs.
Louise Danielczuk at Northampton Hope Centre, commented: “We would like to thank Bloor Homes for their support. The winter is particularly challenging for homeless people and those living in poverty, with many people struggling to stay warm as the temperatures drop. We rely on the kind donations from individuals and local businesses like Bloor Homes in order to provide support to those in need.”
Donations can be taken to the following Bloor Homes’ sales centres, which are open daily from 10am to 5pm. Donations should be made by Wednesday 18th December.
