With the turning back of the clocks, Halloween a distant memory and the last of the fireworks all but fizzled out, it’s time to think about the next big event in the calendar – Christmas!
To make room for our Christmas jumpers, Santa hats and festive condiments we’ve all had a clear out of our wardrobes and kitchen cupboards and instead of heading to the clothes bank or charity shop we will be donating to the service users of Trinity Winchester.
We recently spent a day volunteering at Trinity and were left truly humbled by the experience – vowing that we continue to support them, not only giving our time but also donations, be that monetary or otherwise.
Trinity Winchester provide vital practical and emotional support to over 600 people each year who experience the effects of homelessness or vulnerability, whilst their dedicated Women’s Service sees around 150 women a year. Trinity’s main aim is to support and work with individuals to change their situation and aspire towards positive fulfilling futures.
So we will be doing a charity collection here at our offices in Chandler’s Ford and would love for you to join in and drop off donations here – we will then take everything to Bradbury House!
Your support, however big or small, will be so appreciated.
We will be accepting donations at our office until Friday 30 November. You can find us at: The Incuhive Space, Mayflower Close, Chandlers Ford, SO53 4AR.
