Just wanted to record a public THANK YOU to the amazing group of Winter Shelter volunteers who turned out in THAT WEATHER this Saturday morning to help move all the bedding and other crucial equipment from Castle Lodge to its new home at the Stephenson Centre.

We haven’t finished counting yet but we have about 25 camp beds, 8 inflatable beds, 20 inflatable sleeping mats, about 50 pillows, pillow cases and sleeping bags and several boxes of blankets in our new store. Thank you to all our kind supporters as well as our damp and weary volunteers – Alvene, Bill, Mel, Martin, Rosemary, Geoff, Suan (and her van!) and Andy. Lovely spending time with you all as ever and a job well done.
