Winter Streets Project

Dear All,

I am writing to you all to ask for a little help.

My daughter, a former Crofton student, has started a small charity called Winter Streets project.

In Winter 2016 she and a few friends, gave out 150 Survival/Comfort packs to homeless people. In 2017, the number had grown to 462 packs and a few more kind friends helped. This Winter she hopes to distribute 750 packs to folk in London, Portsmouth, Bristol, Southampton and Fareham.

She is well on the way to getting the items needed for this number of packs - she has emailed companies and organisations and contacted friends and theatre colleagues and has received many kind donations. Below is a list of items needed.

If you can help at all with any of the items required; there will be a large pink plastic bin in a corner of Learning Support waiting to gratefully receive any donations.

Thank you all very much

Mrs J Ballard
