3May

BHT’s homeless day centre, First Base, is appealing for sun cream and sun hats to protect homeless people who are often exposed to extreme heats in spring and summer.

You can either purchase sun cream or sun hats from our Amazon Wish List on the link below, or drop items off to First Base itself at: St. Stephen’s Hall, Montpelier Place, Brighton, BN1 3BF

Being outside so much without adequate clothing and sun protection puts people who sleep rough at high risk of sunburn, heat stroke and dehydration. Your support in donating sun cream and sun hats to First Base clients will help improve their health and wellbeing  over the summer months.

Deirdre O’ Halloran, Deputy Manager of First Base
