BAPS Charities, Preston, collected winter clothing and food for the homeless on 22 December 2018, as part of an on-going commitment to serve the needy in the local community.
Both children and adult volunteers collected a variety of warm pieces of clothing, including jumpers, jackets and trousers, as well as a large collection of tinned food. These in turn were deposited at Emmaus, a charity that aims to make positive changes to the life of homeless people and the community around them.
Nitin Patel, a lead volunteer at BAPS Charities in Preston, shared his thoughts on the programme: “Being homeless is unimaginable in a first world country like ours, but unfortunately it’s a sad reality. We hope that the clothes and food can provide some comfort and assistance to those without a roof over their heads.”
