The Christmas Eve homeless event is once again returning to Newcastle central station.
Central station will open its doors to the North East Homeless this Christmas eve with an amazing team built up of volunteers will be on hand to serve a hot meal to those who are in real need in our community.
For just £5 your donation will provide a warm Christmas eve dinner to someone less fortunate, for many it may be the only Christmas gift they get. The charity has been hit with a surge in unprecedented demand due to pandemic last year and now the cost of living crisis, job losses and cuts in universal credit among other things which has seen many people who never thought they would be reliant on food banks relying on North East Homeless services.
North East Homeless work hard all year around providing survival equipment, homeless support, hot food, and a chance to meet and talk with the outreach support across the region.
This year more than ever they need help and support to enable their work to continue as the charity looks to make this the biggest Christmas event they have ever done to help cope with the surge in demand.
As well as the one-off donation option there is a monthly donation option to help support the charity and the work they do all year round.
Your fiver donation may not sound like allot but the charity is amazing for making every penny count providing a warm hearty Christmas meal. Donations can be made at the NEoffers.co.uk website, who are again fundraising for North East Homeless.
Chris Tubman, NEoffers.co.uk; 'Likely due to the cost of living crisis donations this year are below the usual amount, despite the increase in demand on the services the charity faces, we are therefore asking people who cannot donate themselves to simply share out the campaign, sharing helps us spread awareness and get even more donations and can be incredibly powerful way to help ensure everyone who needs it can get a warm Christmas meal and friendly Christmas environment.'
