With us approaching the end of a tough and the latest figures of 23,000 young people facing homelessness over the festive period we still have lots of work to do, but we are feeling hopeful, and that is down to you!
Over the last few weeks we have had donations from various organisations, friends and family, ex-service users and the local community. Many people organising drop offs at the office, donating online or sending items from our Amazon wish list. We received so many items for our Christmas hampers, but then also food donations to stock up our food bank and then further financial donations to continue to support our work.
All of this has resulted in BYH being able to distribute Christmas hamper and presents to 69 people and 8 children! We are also finishing the year with a much better stocked food bank, lots of promises of volunteer hours and feeling reconnected to some of our service users.
To everyone who has donated, who has had a chat with us on the phone or doorstep, who has delivered parcel or spread the word about BYH, THANK YOU!!!
We look forward to continuing our work in 2021, with a few new projects on the horizon as well.
