Quaker Open Christmas
In 2019 they will be returning to the american church on tottenham court road…After the success of 2018’s Christmas shelter they have been invited back to the American Church. This central London location is on the border of Camden and Westminster and sees a lot of street homelessness. They will be open to guests from 3pm on 23 December to 10am on 30 December.
They are looking for good quality donations of the following:
  • Men’s clothing - particularly jeans, trainers and jumpers
  • Towels - any size but the larger the better
  • Toiletries - tooth paste and toothbrush, shower gel, shaving kits, baby wipes
Please visit their website if you would like to know more or volunteer to help www.qha.org.uk/volunteer
Please bring your practical gifts to the MH by Tuesday 19th at the latest, when they will be taken to London . (They should be put upstairs in the Long Room, NOT against the heaters.)
