St Wilfrid’s Church drop-in centre


Volunteers working through St Wilfrid's Church continue to provide practical support to Preston’s homeless men and women.

 

A free hot meal, cakes, and a hot drink is provided every Tuesday,

whilst on Wednesday clothes, shoes, sleeping bags and toiletries are provided to anyone in need.

 

On both nights volunteers spend time listening and chatting over a hot drink with those who attend

 

By supporting this drop in centre, you are helping those sleeping rough and those with substandard accommodation.                                                                                    

 

Sleeping bags, socks, gloves, toiletries and warm clothing are urgently needed.

 

All donations for the Food bank and St Wilfrid’s can be dropped off at the convent or 3 Marlborough Drive (opposite the main entrance to the OLSE church) or collection can be arranged by calling 0777 943 6279
