Can you help?

Published: 15/01/2020 By Allan Fuller

Putney Saint Margarets  Church community are thrilled to be working with "Glass Door" who have been operating shelters in London for twenty years. We have offered the finance for them to purchase a new dishwasher and micro wave rather than acquiring second had, what could you offer to help this extremely worthwhile and desperately needed campaign? Glass door is London's largest open-access network of emergency winter shelters and support services for men and women affected by homelessness. Guests of their emergency shelters receive a warm welcome, a hot supper and a breakfast in the morning, cooked and served by volunteers. These free services are a life-line to those who would otherwise be sleeping on the street. Glass Door not only saves lives by providing refuge from the cold, we also help our guests build more stable futures.
 5000 guests have stayed in their shelters since 2019. Last year 202 guests moved into housing. 70% said they felt more optimistic about the future.
