Look at the number of presents Robin Hood and his Merry Men at the Nottingham Building Society have collected at their Reverse Santa event during December. Thanks must go to our local community who supported this project by making generous donations of gifts and presents. All distributed by the Early Help Team and Buxton Street by Street group to children and young people whose Christmas would otherwise be present-less.
Supported by Buxton Lions, who used their long-established relationship with Santa to ask him to leave one of his collection boxes in the Nottingham’s reception area. What a great result.
Buxton Lions have presented High Peak Homeless Help with 10 sleep pods. The local club joined with other Lions clubs in the region to make a bulk purchase of the pods, which provide insulated and waterproof shelter, ensuring that a night spent in the open can still be warm and dry.
Cath Sterndale, Project Coordinator of High Peak Homeless Help, pictured with Lions President David Brindley and one of the pods, said that, as a last resort when no other options were available, the pods would be a very welcome addition to the project’s resources in the fight to look after homeless people in the town. She added that, sadly, the pods will be needed but that they will help keep the homeless safe and healthy and may even save lives.
