20th November 2017
The Deep Business Centre and visitor attraction are stepping up their efforts to make Christmas more comfortable for the city’s homeless community by naming Hull Homeless Outreach as the 2017 charity. This begins with a coffee morning fundraiser on Monday 4 December as well as a collection for vital food and drink items.
Both staff and tenants alike from the Business Centre and Visitor Attraction will be collecting vital items and we would be grateful for any donations. It's simple things that many of you will have lying around at home such as sugar, long life milk, rice, pasta, tinned vegetables, tuna, crisps, small bottles of water, cordial and for a bit of Christmas cheer.... mince pies and small selection boxes. Please be aware that the centre is cooking meals in bulk, so our collection is based around what they need.
We will also be holding a coffee morning on Monday 4 December from 10am - 2pm at The Deep Business Centre. This is open to anyone in the area who would like to call in. Please do feel free to bring along any cakes to sell if you are able.
Finally, we will also be collecting items for Hull Homeless Outreachs' Christmas boxes, so any donations of the following would be fantastic:
- Hats and scarves
- Used clothing such a jeans, jumpers, coats
- Sleeping bags or quilts
- Toiletries such as soap, shower gel, roll on deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, brushes and hand sanitiser
Simply drop any contributions to The Deep Business Centre, Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5pm.
