Faith in action
Building on the success of their first Winter Night Shelter, 'Churches Together in Broxbourne', supported by Broxbourne Council, will once again run a Winter Night Shelter for 12 weeks in 2020 from 6 January until 29 March.
Seven churches across Hoddesdon, Broxbourne, Wormley and Waltham Cross will each provide accommodation for one night per week, a hot evening meal and breakfast in the morning.
The Night Shelter ran for the first time in January 2019 over an eight week period, helping nine people who would otherwise have spent the winter without anywhere to stay.
The scheme is run entirely by volunteers who give up their time to help those in need of support. Diana Forrest, the Project Coordinator said: "We are so encouraged that 200 people have volunteered to help with this project.
We look forward to providing warmth, good food and a loving welcome to our guests again this year".
Volunteers are still needed to drive a van early in the morning to move the beds from one church to the next. Members of the public who are able to support the scheme in this way should contact Diana Forrest on: email@example.com.
Those who would benefit from the night shelter should contact Broxbourne Council's Housing Advice via the website at www.broxbourne.gov.uk/HousingAdvice.
