“We are delighted that you may help us to bring some hope and a little comfort to homeless people. Even in the lovely Peak District it is desperately lonely, demoralising and hard-work not having even a room to call your own. All that most homeless people want is a chance to start sorting things out. Even a simple tent, with your own ‘front door’ is a big step up. Even an emergency rucksack shows that someone cares. But of course, we do not stop there – we work with homeless people to help them to find organisations that can help them move on. The first day we meet people, however, we make sure they have somewhere safe and warm to sleep, warm clothes and food. Thank you so much for considering helping in such a practical way.“
