The past few weeks have been punctuated with the sound of knocks at our reception window. Friendly faces have come bearing harvest gifts from schools, churches and community groups across Hampshire.

Donations have included food and household cleaning products. Volunteers have helped to organise the donations and store them onsite ready for the coming months. The food donations will be used to make homecooked and nutritious meals for our residents. They will also be made into new home starter packs for residents when they are ready and able to leave The Winchester Beacon and move into their own accommodation.

“We feel very blessed to be part of such a caring and supportive community” comments Michèle Price, Chief Executive of The Winchester Beacon. “Not only do the donations help to feed our residents but they also remind residents that there are many people who care about them and want to help them on their path out homelessness. We rely heavily on our supporters for donations and volunteering and really appreciate everything that they do to contribute to our vital service.”
