The Hopestead team, alongside our fantastic group of volunteers have been busy sorting through all of your kind and generous donations for our Hope At Christmas 2020 campaign and are so grateful for all of the support you have given us. 

This appeal is just one step towards achieving our overall goal of ending homelessness in the East of England. 

We will spend the next day or so delivering to the six likeminded charities and grassroots organisations working hard to make a difference this winter:-

FABB (Food and Beverage Buggies), Norwich
The People’s Picnic, Norwich
Ipswich Winter Night Shelter
Winter Comfort for the Homeless, Cambridge
Street Vets
Salvation Army

But in the meantime wanted to thank you all for your support. 

Together we can make a difference in our communites.

Almost 300 nominations were received for the Stars of Norfolk and Waveney Awards 2020.

We were honoured to judge the Community Hero of the Year award and Judge’s Special Award. 

Congratulations to Melanie Lord, Bob and Angie Cossey, and Jacob Gravestock. We’ve been so inspired by the winners for going above and beyond.  These acts of #kindness are vital in keeping our communities connected and thriving.

Huge congratulations.

Lives of those experiencing homelessness will be lost this winter unless action is taken to get them into socially distanced accommodation and that is why this year, we are supporting The Ipswich Winter Night Shelter in our Hope At Christmas Winter Campaign. Would you be willing to donate the price of your morning coffee to enable someone to sleep in a warm bed for the night? 

If you would like to #support, head over to https://www.hopestead.org/ where you can donate directly to our campaign.
