Night Shelter Success this Winter
Our Night Shelter, at the Parish Hall each Sunday, has got off to a great start. A team of willing and capable volunteers, coordinated by John Mulcahy, have worked tirelessly to create a warm and relaxing environment for our twenty to twenty five guests.
The Teddington shelter has established a reputation amongst the guests for serving first class healthy and hearty food. The volunteers support Aga Kwiatek, our wonderful Glass Door Shelter Manager, who ensures a safe and calm
atmosphere for all.
Anne McTear ran her socks off back in October to raise over £1,600, which has pretty much financed the entire food budget for the Shelter from November through to April, a massive achievement. The shelter has had support from a number of generous personal donors as well as Dexters and Toast Café.
The Organic Delivery Co. supply the vegetables and Gardenia provide flowers to dress the tables. We are enormously grateful to John, Aga, Mary, Anne and to everyone else who continues to volunteer in many ways.
If you would like to get involved:
- Baking for the Night Shelter – any type of pudding or cake would be very welcome – please contact Mary Field-Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Donations of new socks and underwear are needed for both our female and male guests – they can be left at the back of church (which is open every day) or dropped into St Mary’s Parish Hall on Langham Road.
