Wintercomfort's Christmas Appeal 2017


We urgently need your help to improve the lives of increasing numbers of homeless people in Cambridge. Homelessness is not a choice people make, it could happen to anyone. 


Last year we supported a record number of individuals, 763 men and women, a 9% rise on the previous year. We know this figure with continue to escalate with many more homeless individuals needing our support.  Wintercomfort provides a vital lifeline. It is the only day centre in Cambridge for the homeless. We provide essential welfare support, learning & development and employment opportunities to help us get people back on their feet.  With your donation we can fund the following: 


· £14 buys a cooked breakfast for a rough sleeper for a week 

· £40 pays for laundry powder for a month, giving people the dignity of clean clothes 

· £100 provides professional 1-2-1 jobs skills training session for a day




We always need sleeping bags, warm clothing  including jackets, fleeces, hoodies, jeans, socks, new pants & jogging bottoms if you wish to make a doantion of this type please contact us first. 


Stuart's story with Wintercomfort 


Stuart, 51, has recently moved into his own flat after long periods of sleeping under a bridge and in and out of hostels in Cambridge. Stuart said: “Wintercomfort was my lifesaver. To be freezing cold and welcomed by the team meant so much to me.”
