From winter 2017/18

"The Shelter provides free accommodation for up to ten locally connected homeless people, and this winter opened on 1 December and will run until 15 March 2018. The accommodation is provided in a different church each night of the week and the Shelter is run by a team of volunteers. Guests also receive a hot meal, usually cooked on site by volunteers, and volunteers are encouraged to eat with and spend time with the guests after the meal when a variety of activities may be offered" from Night Shelter | Horsham Matters

We have now closed the winter 2017/18 appeal and want to share our heartfelt thanks with everyone who has supported this valuable work.

Horsham Night Shelter - February Appeal (5/2/18)

Winter is never good time to be homeless. With the flurries of snow that greeted us this morning we are reminded how February can be so cold.

Thank you to everyone who has donated food to this latest appeal. Tony sends out "heartfelt thanks from the Night Shelter volunteers who helped our homeless guest .... Thank you to Hilary and to the anonymous donors. All your kindness has been gratefully received by our guests."

This week we aren't asking for food but if you would like to help, we will accept cash donations. 

We ask that you use a GIFT AID envelope from Southwater Parish Church (there are some on the table at the back of the church marked up ready to use for the Night Shelter), 

  • mark it NIGHT SHELTER, 
  • make out your cheque to Southwater PCC
  • place your cheque into the envelope
  • and complete your details on the envelope
  • drop it at the Vicarage. 

We will then ensure your donation reaches the Night Shelter.  

Every donation is gratefully received. Thank you to everyone for your support.

Horsham Night Shelter - February Appeal Thank you (1/2/18)

Winter is never good time to be homeless and February is one of the coldest months in the year. It is forecast to get colder over the next few days.

Thank you to everyone who has donated food to this latest appeal.

Tony says he, his fellow volunteers and the Night Shelter guests have been overwhelmed by your generosity and support.

Tony says, "Can I say a heartfelt thanks from the Night Shelter volunteers who helped our homeless guests enjoy a homely meal cooked by Christine...sausages & mash, carrots, peas, caramelised onions, apple pie & custard. Southwater residents have, once again, excelled - thank you to Hilary and to the anonymous donors. All your kindness has been gratefully received by our guests.

A full English breakfast will be served in the morning.

Thank you everybody!"

Every donation is gratefully received. Thank you to everyone who has already supported the Night Shelter.
