Can you be our Harvest Hero?

Harvest is a time for giving, a time for thanks and for sharing with others who have fallen upon hard times. It is such an important festival to our charity.

Last year, thanks to the support of local schools and churches across the county, over £20,000 was raised – helping to feed local people experiencing homelessness. Financial donations meant that we could buy fresh produce, as and when needed, enabling us to plan for the difficult winter months ahead.

As the long term economic reality of Covid is now really starting to bite in our communities, we are seeing a rapidly increasing number of people coming to us for support. So many are seeking help for the first time as they tackle job loss, bereavement and poor mental health. Another consequence of the pandemic has been increasing food poverty ranging from being worried about where the next meal may come from to actually going hungry on a regular basis.

Throughout Harvest your monetary donations will help us provide fresh and nutritious food for people experiencing homelessness. Get your colleagues, school friends, church group involved – become a Harvest Hero.

I never thought I would be homeless

If someone told me on my 60th birthday that I’d be homeless the following year, I’d have thought them ridiculous!

For 33 years I worked in care, mainly for elderly people with dementia, in nursing homes and post psychiatric wards. I think I’ve had what most people would consider to be a ‘normal’ life.

But then life took a cruel twist.​
