Blackpool is one of the UK’s most deprived areas and Street Life provide support, shelter and direction to help vulnerable young people find their way.
Imaging being homeless? Not having a stable abode, no family or friends to help, hardly any items of your own, sleeping rough, wondering when your next meal will be, being freezing cold on the streets in the winter months!!
Who do they help:
Young people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness or who have recently been homeless.
Blackpool Self Store are supporting this wonderful local charity this Christmas, donating items that can go directly to these homeless young people.
We are asking our loyal and generous customers, or anyone local to the area, to drop in an item that can be donated, and in return, you will be given a raffle ticket to be in the chance of winning either;
a Giant 1 metre high cuddly Olaf (from Frozen 2)
a 3 Litre (double Magnum) bottle of Giotti Prosecco!
Some suggestions of items that could be donated:
- Thick socks
- Chocolate bars
- Toothpaste & toothbrush
- Female hygiene items
- Coffee shop voucher
- Hand warmers
- Even a signed Christmas card to help someone feel ‘visible’!
