HACKNEY WINTER NIGHT SHELTER
Is extending the shelter to run from 1 November to 23 December this year and HWNS are looking for loads more volunteers
Fifteen homeless guests will be welcomed for hot supper, bed and breakfast, as part of a roving shelter which, on different nights, moves from one church hall to another across Hackney
There are six different jobs to help – to prepare the hall (6.30pm-8pm), to cook the supper (for 8.30pm), to welcome the guests (7.30pm-10pm), to stay overnight (10pm-7am sleeping in shifts), to cook breakfast (6.30-8.30am) and to clear up the hall (7am-8.30am)
You will work with a great band of diverse people and enter the fascinating lives of those you otherwise may not meet. You may find your neighbours volunteering beside you.
It’s a great experience.
Make a difference, go to hwns.org.uk and click on “volunteer”.
Fill in the form, sign up and join over 500 other volunteers across Hackney.
Put Saturday 22 September in your diary as Training Day.
