About

On Friday 1 October 2021, we will be taking part in Glass Door Homeless Charity’s Sleep Out. Our family will be sleeping out in the churchyard at St. Peter's Church in Hammersmith with the Vicar and members of the congregation, giving up our beds for the night to raise awareness of homelessness and funds for Glass Door’s life-saving work.

During the pandemic, it was one of the few homeless services that remained opened and helped hundreds of people find routes out of homelessness.

Our family has a lot of experience sleeping out. Tom, our son, lived for six years in the jungle of Costa Rica, Vicky and I have both slept out once for Glass Door. I was in the first Sleep Out and Vicky was in the second.

Vicky and I have been Glass Door volunteer co-ordinators at Rivercourt Church for many years. From the picture you can see Vicky and I look exactly the same although Tom has grown up with the Charity.

Unlike other homeless charities Glass Door doesn't require a referal to admit a guest. Guests can stay as long as they keep their nose clean and actively participate with their assigned case worker. Glass Door has a very good success rate finding work and accomodation for our guests. The drive is always to reduce homelessness rather than to simply supply stop gap measures.

We hope you will be able to donate to this cause and appreciate any amount you can give no matter how small.

 

Thank you for any help you can give us!
