P&G Harvest Festival Donation!

As part of this years harvest collection, P&G donated to us a great deal of long lasting food items: including rice, tinned fruit and vegetables, pasta and biscuits. Not only were the P&G staff kind enough to donate such a huge quantity but the P&G management matched all items given by buying an extra item for each food supply donated. In total we have received food items well worth up to £400! We will keep these items and save them for new residents that arrive without anything to eat.

Stacked!

Stacked!

We have many clients that come to us directly upon completing their custodial sentences. They leave the prison gate and move directly into our provision of accommodation. These clients usually do not have any local families or friends who can help them; this is why they seek help and accommodation from us. In this situation they have few resources and finite time to help them acquire all the basic items they need to sustain their tenancies outside of the prison.

A food starter pack would make all the difference to someone in a similar position. It usually takes a few weeks before new clients can settle and start to manage independently.

Thank you P&G.

The Christmas Wind Down!

We are delighted to announce that both Proctor and Gamble (P&G) and Marks and Spencer (Poole Branch) launched a shoe box campaign over the Christmas period. As a result we received massive amounts of presents full of useful items for our vulnerable residents such as tooth brushes and tooth paste, shower gel, deodorant and shampoo. Both companies really went above and beyond and we thank their staff for taking the time for making this happen.

The Gang!

Santa and her helpers!
