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 29th June and 8th July 2019. 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
