Click here for Night Shelter press release
It replaces the emergency shelter that we had in place which has been run by some of our own staff plus people from a number of partner organisations that we work with. 
We are running an ongoing appeal for items to support the people using the winter night shelter. Although through a social media appeal (and a huge thank you to the individuals, companies and the We Love Bury St Edmunds Facebook group which has got behind this) we already believe we have enough bedding, there will be ongoing items that we will need including:
Men and women’s toiletries
Toilet rolls,
Tea/ coffee
Long life foods   

Appreciate your helping spread the message on this one. Thank you.
