No Room at the Inn

by admin on 7 December 2012

Christmas is a time to be spent with family and friends, giving to the people we love, and a chance to indulge in treats.

Unfortunately, for some people Christmas is just another day

of hardship. At SIFA Fireside, a Birmingham-based charity tackling homelessness and substance abuse, we help hundreds of individuals who will be without secure accommodation this Christmas. For such individuals, Christmas serves as a bitter reminder of the everyday struggle they face.

To capture the true meaning of Christmas this year, SIFA Fireside is asking for £5 donations in order to continue our vital work. We recognise the tough economic environment is creating a strain on many families this Christmas; however the extent of the government cuts means raising funds is more important than ever.Here are a few examples of what £5 could buy:

• A hot meal for six people
• Tea for 100 people every day for a week
• 2 slices of toast at breakfast for 80 people
• 15 pairs of socks for rough sleepers
• 3 pairs of underwear for rough sleepers
• 5 woolly hats for rough sleepers
• 16 tins of baked beans
• 13 tins of soup
If you would like to donate, please press the “donate” button at the top of this page which will take you to our JustGiving page
Alternatively you can donate via text by messaging SIFA05 £5 to 70070
