Homelessness in Leigh

After months of searching Wigan Council have offered temporary premises to be used as a night shelter.

The building on Ethertstone Street in Leigh is a former school which is due to be demolished later this year and has been given temporarily to accommodate up to 15 homeless persons within the borough.

The shelter will open during the hours of 7pm and 7am Monday to Friday

As with all these enterprises
volunteers are the key.

Could you volunteers to spend the night at the shelter?
Could you volunteer to prepare food during the evening as people arrive?
Could you volunteer to prepare breakfasts?

If you feel you could offer some time to spare please contact Warren on 07980 881925
He can also be contacted through Foodbank which supplies food parcels at Kingsleigh Methodist Church.

Please pray for the future of the shelter and success with the funding bid with the council
