Night Shelter

Following the success of last year’s Night Light Winter Shelter, local churches will again run a shelter for those that are street homeless in our community. The shelter will run seven nights a week, from five venues across the town centre.

We are looking for cooks, drivers, volunteers to: set up in the evening, to clear away in the mornings, help with breakfast, overnight, and to help the venue coordinators.

Single duvet covers are also needed. Please bring them to church, and we will be passed on to the appropriate person.
