Weekly wish list

We’ve had a steady stream of donations since we launched our appeal and this has been a tremendous help, but we still need more donations of particular items to aid our young residents physical and mental wellbeing in these challenging times. Please view this week’s wishlist to see if you can help…

Following a suggestion from a Business supporter, we are now producing a weekly wish list of all the items we’re in need of this particular week. This helps ensure our vulnerable young people, many of whom are self-isolating, can receive a healthy range of food and the other essentials they need.

URGENT appeal!

Currently we’re in particular need of:
