For the third year running Boots support us in the Hexham, Haltwhistle and Prudhoe
Store manager Paula Braugh started the collection points in 2017 and it was such a great success they have continued. We cannot thank Paula, the Boots staff and all Boots customers enough for their generosity. When we collect the items we are particularly struck with the thought that has gone in to the donations, toiletries, toothbrushes, lotions, socks, gloves, hygiene products, nappies, hand wipes. We use everything we receive; to provide a welcome pack for people when they first arrive; to help those rough sleeping who we can’t accommodate because we have no room but who come to us to wash their clothes, have a shower and a hot meal. These donations also help to provide a Christmas present for everyone we support over Christmas, those in the accommodation and those who have moved on to a home of their own but still need support and contact over Christmas.
