Befrienders Needed

Befrienders Needed

Throughout the pandemic Turning Tides’ befriending volunteers have been critical in supporting the growing number of men and women who have become homeless. We are now looking to grow the service significantly to combat the isolation that is often experienced by those having to sleep rough.

As restrictions ease, we are looking to grow our befriending service, to ensure the increasing number of clients needing our services are able to access such a vital source of support across the county. Particularly, we are looking for potential volunteer befrienders in the Horsham area.
Danielle Huet, Volunteer Coordinator at Turning Tides explains; “During the pandemic we have been providing a befriending service to combat the feelings of loneliness that our clients were increasingly experiencing, especially during lockdown. The benefits have been so significant during such a challenging time that we are launching a new befriending drive – to secure more befrienders countywide as part of our Routes to Roots programme.”

5K May

5K May

At the beginning of the pandemic  Run for Heroes, the infamous 5K running challenge, brought more than a million people together – a fantastic fundraiser as well as a viral fitness motivator asking participants to run 5, donate 5 and nominate 5. Following on from the success of the original fundraiser, the nation is once again being encouraged to get active this May – and we have partnered with Run for Heroes encouraging the community to sign up, have fun and support record numbers of homeless men and women at the same time. 

5kMay, as the name suggests, is a whole month all about getting fit and hitting that 5km target. It’s not just about running though – participants could walk, roll, skip or even swim 5k if they wish! All that matters is getting your body moving and raising vital funds for people in need.

Hercule Van Wolfwinkle

Hercule Van Wolfwinkle

Phil Heckels of Worthing (38), also known as Hercule Van Wolfwinkle, could never have believed that his “rubbish” drawings would raise over £20,000 in just over a month for our charity. He has been plunged into the limelight – becoming a global sensation overnight! Overwhelming support of this local artist has raised the profile of homelessness in our community and raised an enormous amount to support local men and women who have nowhere to call home.
