Sainsbury's Forestside kindly hosted our volunteers for some bag packing on 22nd December 2017. The last Friday before Christmas, it was a very busy day, and shoppers were incredibly generous, helping us to raise a massive £1,500.38! Thank you so much to all the customers who donated, and to the lovely staff who accommodated us and worked so hard all day. Once again, our volunteers- Jack, Rachel, Paul, Michael, Naoisa and Matthew- were fantastic, not only raising a huge amount for Shelter NI, but also helping to make the hectic Christmas shop more bearable for customers in the process!
Your generousity enables us to continue to support our young residents in project SLATE and older and disabled people through project GABLE- fighting against homelessness and poor housing in Northern Ireland.
Thank you for a great end to 2017! Happy New Year!
