Stoke Newington homeless centre gets cash boost from college
Hackney Community College donates money otherwise spent on corporate Christmas cards
A Stoke Newington charity will be able to offer homeless people new warm bedding thanks to a donation from Hackney Community College.
North London Action for the Homeless (NLAH) received �500 from the Shoreditch-based college, after staff collected money otherwise spent on corporate Christmas cards.
It will go towards some much-needed new sleeping bags and blankets for visitors to the NLAH drop-in centre, based at St Paul’s Church hall in Stoke Newington Road.
The charity feeds between 40 and 90 people twice a week and provides clothing, advice and literacy classes.
