Clothes collection

Please help support our clothes collection from West London Homeless project which provides London’s largest night shelter

West London Churches Homeless Concern (WLCHC)

homeless2Last year, at harvest festival, we collected large quantities of clothes, bags, towels and toiletries for the WLCHC night shelters. Although it was decided not to do this at this year’s harvest festival we will be doing a collection in a few weeks time as they open the shelters in November. Please bear this in mind as you turn out your wardrobes or go shopping!

They need:

Bags, particularly rucksacks, Shoes in decent condition, Clothing, especially warm winter clothes, including used winter coats, sweaters, boots, and new underwear, Toiletries of all kinds, particularly men’s razors and shampoo.

I will put an update in the notices when we are starting to collect items but meanwhile if you wish to contact me please do so on 07956 655037 or email me at [email protected] Thank you, Libby

homelss1What We Do – West London Churches Homeless Concern relieves poverty among street homeless people in West London by providing accommodation, advice and support. Each winter since 1999, churches of different denominations in West London provide the venues for our night shelter.

We provide:

  • London’s largest night shelter – up to 100 bed spaces per nights during the winter months
  • year-round daytime services including laundry, clothing and washing facilities from our base in Chelsea
  • a casework service – offering advice, advocacy and practical support to help find solutions to homelessness
