There’s something of dire social importance going on in Walsall right now. It’s cold, and people are on the streets. In town, there are a group of people working to help the displaced, the lost and the lonely. Please help them all you can.
The Plastic Hippo posted a brilliant piece last night on the subject in his own, beautiful, inimitable sting-in-the-tail style. Do read it, please.
That any of this is necessary, in Walsall, in 2013 shames humanity, our authorities and us.
Hi’s and Lows Emergency Homeless Shelter at The Crossing at St Paul’s is open overnight during this very cold period and they have a desperate need for donations to support Walsall’s homeless.
Anything you can do to support this service would be hugely appreciated and potentially life-saving with these sub-zero temperatures.
Useful donations include:
- Men’s jumpers, socks, underwear (new pants only, please!), hats and coats
- Board games/magazines/books
- Any snacks, tea, coffee, sugar, hot chocolate, biscuits, cakes
You can drop items off at the Crossing or contact them via:
