In an effort to help Brighton and Hove’s homeless community, members and friends enthusiastically filled toilet bags made by one of our members with essential hygiene supplies. These were then given to local charity Off The Fence for distribution to the homeless women they are in contact with. We were able to collect items for the men too.

“I am writing to express our thanks, and that of our clients for your recent kind donations of home-made toiletry bags containing underwear, hand gel, feminine wipes, roll on deodorant, pack of tissues and chocolate. These bags will be much appreciated by our female clients. Thank you also for the socks and boxer shorts for the men. We thank God for your partnership in our work, your thoughtfulness for the needs of our clients and your ongoing prayers.”
