Every Christmas we are committed to supporting the amazing charities that work tirelessly to raise funds for those less fortunate than us. This Christmas, we are organising donation drives for two charities, the Penfold Community Hub and the Marylebone Project.
The Marylebone Project
The Marylebone Project is a registered social landlord providing 112 long- and short-term beds to homeless women and offering essential facilities and support to women who visit their rough sleepers’ drop-in at the Marylebone Centre. The Marylebone Centre also delivers education, employment and training opportunities, and meaningful activities to support service users into independent living.
Every donation, big or small goes directly to supporting their work and making a crucial difference in tackling women’s homelessness. They would be very grateful to receive the following donations:
-Stationary including pens, diaries, and books
-Clothes including socks, underwear, scarves, and gloves
-Toiletries including wet wipes, makeup, hair accessories and perfume
The Penfold Community Hub
The Penfold Community Hub provides day to day care for residents with long term health conditions including Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease. It is also a community centre which supports older people in the local area through a range of activities aimed at improving their health and wellbeing and offering a better quality of life.
Penfold Community Hub are seeking items to make up small parcels to be distributed to their residents and other nearby sheltered housing schemes. The following items are very welcome:
-Tesco vouchers (there is a small Tesco nearby where staff shop for residents’ groceries)
-Toiletries including baby wipes
-Small hand towels and facecloths
-Biscuits, tins/packets of soup, jams and other non-perishable food items
-Small boxes of confectionary (not large boxes)
-Please avoid pasta, candles and alcohol.
Our donation boxes will be in the reception at 5 Merchant Square which is the same building as the M&S Café. You can donate your gifts between 1st – 20th December, which will be personally delivered by the Merchant Square team just ahead of Christmas. Thank you for helping us support these incredible organisations.
