The Gatehouse is appealing for donations for Christmas presents for the homeless and vulnerably housed again this year. We hope for new donations of pants (90% of users are male) socks, hats, gloves, scarves and bars of chocolate. This means that hopefully we will be able to give each user of the project at least one Christmas present in 2017 (we are currently averaging 385 visits a week).
Our community Christmas present wrapping event is due to be held on Wednesday 20th December 11am-3pm at St Giles Parish Rooms, 10 Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6HT. Everyone is welcome, including children (with a responsible adult). No need to book, just turn up to help!
Donations can be delivered to the same address between 4pm-7pm Monday-Friday and 3-6pm on Sunday.
Thank you in anticipation of your support; the project really couldn’t operate without the support of the community.
