World Homelessness Day

We are fully supporting World Homelessness Day by working together with other Charities across Reading

There will be representatives of many of the charities involved with homelessness in Reading  out on the streets on the 10th October 2017

Our message will be around not giving money to beggars, who will almost certainly be feeding a drug habit, but rather to invest in local homeless charities who are working to help rough sleepers and addicts off the streets and into a brighter future.
