Help the Homeless Bear
We have teamed up with an amazing local Homeless Charity, Sanctus.
Sanctus offers a safe and warm environment where homeless and vulnerable individuals feel comfortable and open to request help.
They provide for free:
- A warm and friendly environment for those who have nowhere else to go
- Free food, drink and clothing exchange for the homeless, vulnerable and those unable to provide for themselves. In 2019 they served over 18,300 free meals.
- Free counselling, advice and advocacy to support life changes and improvement. In 2019 they completed over 1,100 sessions.
- Enrichment activities such as training courses to help returning to work, book, writing and music clubs.
Sanctus was successful in the new HOPE (Heroes of Pandemic Essex) category and was Highly Commended in the TOP (Team of Pride) Category. TOP is awarded to a team or group of people who have made a positive difference to the community, often raising significant funds for charitable causes.
By purchasing this bear for £5 all proceeds go straight to the charity enabling them to continue carrying out the amazing work they already do.
