Together at Christmas
The team at Charity People have been getting involved with an annual winter appeal.
Estranged from family and friends, Christmas can be a lonely time for some in the Bankside area.
As in previous years, the team at Charity People have been getting involved with an annual winter appeal. In these financially difficult times, the Together at Christmas campaign
makes a difference to the lives of homeless and vulnerable people. Better Bankside's Together at Christmas appeal offers a hand-up to Bankside's homeless, vulnerably housed and elderly people through local projects.
Over the past week we've been collecting everything from toothbrushes and warm new clothes to bars of chocolate. This week the team have taken it it turns to volunteer to wrap the gifts.
There was a huge contribution from the various companies and individuals in our shared office in Borough High Street, without whom the box of gifts would have been a lot smaller.
