On 3 December BHT are launching our Christmas campaign full of fundraising activities for First Base Day Centre to support men and woman who are homeless this Christmas and throughout the year.
Throughout December you will see a mix of short films and real life stories from people using First Base, BHT’s day centre for homeless, insecurely housed and vulnerable men and women.
Each of the real life stories and films will show someone who will be sleeping on the streets this Christmas. Their Christmas Day could have been like any other day this winter if it wasn’t for the services at First Base.
On 13 December we will also be holding a volunteer tin shake day to raise money for First Base.
If you would like to volunteer your time then please contact Liz Davies on 01273 645464.
Supporters can make a donation to First Base Day Centre by going to www.justgiving.com/First-Base-Christmas, texting FBAS70£10 to 70070 or sending a cheque made payable to BHT to 144 London Road, Brighton, BN1 4PH.
The short stories you will hear are all too familiar at First Base. Relationship breakdowns, mental ill health, addiction and unemployment have all resulted in homelessness for our clients.
We believe that hearing these stories is important. But just as important is that our supporters hear how their donations will be used to make the lives of people living on the streets a little easier.
A donation of £10 will pay for breakfast and lunch for 10 people at First Base, helping people who have come in from the cold to have a break from the struggle of their day.
Andy Winter, BHT Chief Executive
