BHT’s First Base Day Centre is appealing for donations of towels, boxers, socks and sun cream to be able to continue to provide shower facilities, clothes and sun protection to rough sleepers during the summer months.
Items can either be purchased from our Amazon Wish List or dropped off at First Base Day Centre itself at St. Stephen’s Hall, Montpelier Place, Brighton, BN1 3BF, or at our head office at 144 London Road, Brighton, BN1 4PH.
Something as basic as a shower, that we may take for granted, helps people who rely on First Base to stay clean and healthy.
Sun protection is essential to the wellbeing of our clients. Homeless people are far more likely to get skin cancer than the rest of society. Sunbathers are generally advised to avoid the sun between 11am and 3pm. This advice is not always seen important or possible for those that live on the streets.
Your donation will make a difference to both the physical and mental wellbeing of our clients.
Deirdre O’Halloran, BHT First Base Day Centre Acting Manager
