Thank you to everyone who has used the two contactless donation points that were installed in Broadmead in May 2017.
To date you have donated £18,081, including £540 in September 2019. The money has helped ensure that an average of 1064 beds have been provided so that people do not have to sleep on the streets.
Your continued support is helping to provide much needed support for vulnerable people in Bristol. For example, you will be delighted to learn that our 24-hour winter shelter in St Anne’s has opened again this week (w/c 30 September 2019) until March 2020 to provide a safe place for people to begin their recovery journeys. You can find out more HERE.
St Mungo’s at 50
St Mungo’s say: “To mark St Mungo’s at 50, we are profiling 50 lives throughout the year – a snapshot of those that have played their part in our story. Our hope is that these will inspire you so that, together, we can end homelessness and rebuild more people’s lives. You can find out more and read about some of these lives by visiting the 50 lives page on our website, or by following the link below:
