For the homeless, the impending festivities can bring a sense of dread and increased isolation. Crisis at Christmas has been running since 1972, set up by Crisis, a campaigning organisation lobbying the government to end homelessness. Crisis at Christmas offers food, warmth, companionship and vital services to homeless people over the Christmas period. Thousands of people access this service every year.
Think on that.
Thousands of people who literally have nothing and/or no one, who have to endure on the streets at a time of excessive consumption and celebration.
Every £28.18 we raise could give advice, food and safety for someone battling the festive season. Are you willing to join hands to help?
On Sunday, 25th November, 2.30pm to 4.30pm, I’m running a 60-minute fun, donation-based yoga session at Whitsome Ark, followed by afternoon tea where refreshments can be bought and enjoyed with family and friends.
The trustees of Whitsome Ark have very kindly offered to waive the hall hire and support the event, which is absolutely fabulous. It means that EVERY penny we raise can help make Christmas less like every other day for somebody struggling with homelessness.
So please say you’ll come. I’m letting you know early because I understand how the diary can fill up in the run up to Christmas and I feel that this is something you’d like to prioritise.
Could you also do your bit by sharing this event far and wide? Thank you.
Remember, there but for the grace …
1. The yoga will be suitable for beginners and will take place within a light-hearted atmosphere so please don’t fret about being rubbish!
2. Friends and family are absolutely welcome to the afternoon tea if they don’t fancy the yoga.
3. Children welcome.
4. I have a few spare mats if you don’t have one.
