The Gatehouse – January 2017
The Gatehouse experienced a very busy Christmas time and thanks to donations from the public, we were able to ensure that each Guest got at least one Christmas present of a hat, scarf, gloves, socks, underwear and a bar of chocolate. Often this is the only present that a person might receive.
At the end of December we captured our quarterly data on how many people are using the project (taken over one week) and where a person slept the previous night. We are averaging 335 visits a week and our rough sleeper numbers have increased again to 49% of users.
We are starting the year off trying to be as positive and pro-active about fundraising for the coming year as much as we can. If anybody has any fundraising ideas and would like to support a local independent project then please email email@example.com
