#SheetsNotStreets Christmas Appeal 2018

Give the gift of a good night’s sleep.

We are today launching a new appeal for Christmas 2018.

This is something we are desperately in need of, in the course of a year we house up to 1200 individuals.

Our costs per year just to provide bedding and clean sheets can be over £20,000!

So, this Christmas we are asking for donations of brand new sheets and brand new bedding to give young people a cosy bed and a good night’s sleep.

To take part in our Christmas appeal, please donate one (or more) of the following: 

  • A) 1 SET SINGLE BEDDING – 1 brand new pillow and 1 brand new single duvet
  • B) 1 SET SINGLE SHEETS – 1 brand new pillowcase and a matching single brand new duvet cover and 1 brand new single fitted sheet or
  • C) 1 SET DOUBLE BEDDING – 1 brand new pillow and 1 brand new double duvet
  • D) 1 SET DOUBLE SHEETS – 2 brand new pillowcases and 1 brand new double duvet cover and 1 brand new double fitted sheet

Only 100 of our beds are doubles, the rest are singles. Items must be brand new and in their original packaging.

You could perhaps purchase one item but join together with others at school, Scouts, work or at church to put together a set or several sets to donate.

This will make such a difference to St Basils and homeless young people – thank you!


Please contact us to make us aware of your forthcoming donation.

Unfortunately except in exceptional circumstances (or an extremely large donation) we are unable to assist with collections.

Please drop off your donation at our Head Office. Please call ahead on the day with an ETA especially if you have a large donation so we can make sure there are enough people available to help you unload. Our Head Office is open Monday-Friday 8.30am – 5pm.
