The Whitechapel Mission has helped the homeless in London since 1876 but the need has never been greater than today.
The charity provides showers, breakfast, advice and dignity to each of the 300 people who walk through its doors every day of the year. Clients are mainly men, and there are also some services for homeless women.
Entirely dependent on public support, the Whitechapel Mission always needs donations of clothing which is suitable for street dwellers and in good condition, toiletries and non-perishable breakfast foods.
This appeal is being coordinated through the local Methodist churches of the Wey Valley Circuit, between 28th June and 10th July 2018. Each church will make its own arrangements for collections locally, and all will finally be collected together at Godalming.
For further information on the charity: www.whitechapel.org.uk
Any queries, contact Ryan Kelley 01483 423261 or Janet Shaw 01483 527670
Collection times at Godalming United Church will be:
Friday 29th June 12 noon to 1.30 pm
Saturday 30th June 10.30 am to 12 noon
Sunday 1st July 11.45 am to 12.45 pm
