Helping the homeless

We are pleased to be the partner of Winter Night Shelter Milton Keynes (WNSMK) in bringing the provision of overnight accommodation in the Water Eaton Church Centre for homeless and vulnerable people.  The service commenced on 5 Dec 2019, and will be provided every Thursday until the end of March 2020.  Guests are given a hot meal, a bed for the night, and a breakfast the following morning.

Here’s what the co-ordinator, Tim May,  had to say after the opening night:

“On Thursday 5th December Water Eaton Church Centre opened for its first night as a Winter Night Shelter venue. The first night was a great success and we welcomed 11 guests through our doors. This was the first night not only for the venue but for the majority of our volunteers. I’m pleased to say that it ran like clockwork – as if we had been doing it for some time. I would like to thank everyone involved for their effort and hard work in making our inaugural opening such a success.

The provision of night time accommodation obviously requires many resources: volunteers; material items; money.  The cost of hosting one night is about £90. If anyone would like to help support this project, we would welcome donations of toiletries, warm clothing, or financial donations.
