A warm welcome overnight for homeless people in the coldest months

'It has really been a godsend'

I lost my home due to my business folding and ended up on the streets of Maidstone.

I would like to say just a few lines to say how much I have appreciated the Maidstone Winter Shelter scheme over the last few weeks. It has really been a godsend and it is not pleasant to think how things would of been without the help you have offered.

It is not just the plentiful hot food and overnight shelter that have made a difference, it’s also the friendliness and warmth of the people helping out in the churches. When in an isolated and peripheral situation, such as homelessness, it is good to know that one's not come alone. Keep the scheme going... it’s worth its weight in gold!
