The Thanet Winter Shelters Appeal has received a much-appreciated cash donation from the Ramsgate Emerald Celtic Supporters Club.
The Appeal operates across seven church halls in Ramsgate and Margate between December 1 and February 28. The aim is to provide shelter, food, and company for rough sleepers, during the harsh winter months as well as help with training and employment. A key aim is to better equip some of the district’s most vulnerable people to help them secure and retain longer-term accommodation. The Winter Shelter is again to run alongside Glo Gen’s Aspire Homelessness programme and the homeless charity, Porchlight.
