Thank you to everyone who donated to SIFA Fireside and our clients over the festive period. We’ve been overwhelmed by the number of people wanting to show their support by donating items such as sleeping bags, food, warm clothes and money, and we also couldn’t open our doors 7 days a week without the generous donation of time from our wonderful volunteers.
Your donations totalled over £11,000 and have enabled us to support over 130 people each day and provide them with essentials such as food, toiletries, sleeping bags, roll mats, hats, gloves and clothes. Christmas is a special time of the year for many of us and we want to say a massive thank you for your support both over this period and throughout the year. It’s not just the things in themselves, – knowing that there are people out there who want to help also means a lot to our clients, who often feel invisible.
We’d like to say a special thank you to DHL & Servest who provided volunteers, food and decorations to enable us to hold a party which made Christmas special for our clients too.
