Barnabus Christmas Appeal

Barnabus passionately believe in breaking the cycle of homeless-ness but we need your help.  This year we’re asking you to consider making a monetary donation to fund our support work and drop-in centre.  Donations of items are also very welcome. 

We provide personal pathways of support, enabling people to overcome challenges and move off the streets.  The support we offer is fundamental to ending homelessness and we can only do this with financial support. Your gift will help us to transform lives.

Give a Christmas present that brings long-lasting change.  Please donate items by Friday 7th December.  Steve Best of Holmes Chapel can assist in collecting any donations.  See poster for more information.
