Winter 2018/19 Hoping
We did it
On 27th November 2018 we successfully raised £218 with 11 supporters in 35 days

We need enough money to continue feeding the homeless through Winter 2018/19. To supply basic essentials and a hot meal twice a week.

Alex and Kym Brown and I run HOPING (Helping other People in Need Group). We are a York Street Kitchen, feeding and clothing people in need in the area. At present, we have 10 volunteers who come to Kings Square on a Wednesday and Sunday teatime. 

In order to keep HOPING up and running we are now approaching businesses for contributions, sponsorships and donations. 

If this is something your business would be interested in, please feel free to contact me, Lisa, on 07825 836 758 or email

Should you want to see more of what we do, you are very welcome to visit and meet some of the people we help on Kings Square on a Wednesday or Sunday after 6pm. Alternatively, we have a very successful Facebook page, from which we get a lot of our donations and keep people up to date on all our community activities.  We rely heavily on donations and unfortunately last winter we fell well short of money, meaning to continue it all came out of our own money.
