Newton Abbot Winter Night Shelter News

Thank you to all prospective parish volunteers for the tremendous response for supporting the Night Shelter. We are now processing the volunteer forms and booking the relevant training for us, to ensure we are working as safely as possible on this CTNA project. I am pleased to tell you that Torbay Winter Night Shelter Volunteer Project Managers are supporting us with their knowledge and experience of how to manage this project. There will be many background jobs, ie assembling toiletry packs, care of the laundry, buyers for items such as Personal Protective clothing, fundraising (cake sales), knitting hats and gloves to name but a few. Please speak to Rev'd Gareth Regan or Fr. Nick Debney if you have further questions, ideas, or offers of help.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or if you have been thinking about offering to help it is not too late!
