I chatted with a couple of lads at Vinnie’s today, they were both really tired, they hadn’t slept much as they take it in turns to sleep so they can
watch out for each other and their stuff as it keeps getting stolen or destroyed.
They spent most of the day at Vinnie’s they were given free hot meals and had lots of hot drinks and cakes, they even had a little snooze I think it was so lovely and warm and it felt safe they didn’t wanna leave.
Its so cold outside today and pleased i was able to help them with warm clothing,socks,gloves,scarfs,hats and sleeping bags and I made sure that they knew about other services and charity’s that can also help. 💙
This is why we are so grateful of the help, support and donations that we receive as it is able to help us to provide much needed help and support to those most in need.
