BHT has been chosen as one of three charities that Waitrose will raise money for over Christmas.

We would like to encourage people to shop at Waitrose and to donate to BHT for free as part of the green token scheme.

In January we will take a share of £1,000 along with the Samaritans and the new Macmillan Cancer Support Centre.

The green token campaign will run from Sunday 28 December until Saturday 31 January.

During the month, customers will be given green tokens at the end of their shop and will be asked to choose which charity they would like to make a donation to.

We are really pleased to be chosen as one of Waitrose three charities over Christmas.

All the money raised by Waitrose customers will be used to support homeless men and women in Brighton and Hove.

Increasingly, the people who are turning to First Base for help are not our traditional clients,  but people who  for the first time are facing the very real possibility of using food banks, losing their homes because of redundancy, ill health, relationship breakdown, zero hour contracts, etc.

Some never thought that they would ever need a service for homeless people.

First Base works with people to rebuild their lives after the devastation of homelessness. Helping them to move away from homelessness and towards more positive futures.
