PTNCC supports Peterborough Homeless Helpers, who make a real difference to the lives of the homeless and those in need by providing hot drinks, food, clean clothes, toiletries and a friendly face every Sunday. The homeless wear their clothes 24/7 until they have something clean to change into. Whether on the streets or temporarily in a hostel, their lives are so tough. It’s a dangerous and lonely existence. So please spread the word. There are three main areas for donations:
Canned food such as baked beans, fruit (cans with ring pulls please).
Bottled water (500ml size is ideal)
Snacks, crisps, biscuits
Toiletries – wet wipes, deodorant, shampoo, shower gels (part bottles welcome)
Clothes – clean, serviceable adult clothing – coats, jeans, jumpers, t-shirts, shoes & socks (mens and ladies)
Rucksacks, yoga mats, small tents, sleeping bags
Food and sundry items
To help us with provisions , for example: tea, coffee, sugar, hot chocolate, cuppa soups, pasta, jars of pasta sauce, rice, tins of chopped tomatoes, tinned vegetables or fruit
Sponsor hot meals – £20
We provide a hot meal every week for up to 60 people. We’ve got pretty good at doing this on a budget!
