Baking up funds for Shelter NI
On Sunday 17th December The Bakery, at 52 Howard Street behind City Hall, Belfast, opened to celebrate Christmas and to support Shelter NI for the fifth year running.
Members of the public were invited to take a break from their hectic Christmas shopping and pop in to grab a nice hot drink or try one of the delicious snacks such as sausage rolls, mince pies, shortbread and other pastries. The Bakery generously offered all treats free of charge- people were simply able to choose to make a donation to Shelter NI instead!
We are incredibly grateful to The Bakery and their staff for giving up their day off and helping us to raise a fantastic £760.44! We had great fun dishing out treats to the public and enjoying some Christmas songs courtesy of our director and his guitar! Shelter NI is once again incredibly grateful to our volunteers- Margaret, Rachel, Paul, Michael and Jack- who helped alongside staff from The Bakery to make the day a success!
Shelter NI is not core funded from the public purse. We depend entirely on the generosity of donors to continue our campaigning and development of innovative and long term solutions to homelessness.
If you missed us on the day you can still contribute here!
