Homeless Sunday appeal (from the Housing Justice Group)

During January there will be an appeal to support Churches Together in Oxford.

They are planning to support the Severe Weather Emergency Protocol by providing emergency shelter for people with nowhere to sleep when the weather is predicted to fall below freezing for 3 nights in a row.

The appeal is for toiletries. The items being asked for are soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste and shower gel.

There will be a box available for donations during January.

Helen Carter (01235 764810 or helen-carter@ntlworld.com) will be happy to supply further details or answer any questions you have about this appeal.
