A new year 2012 all ready to begin 😀 …and I’m so glad that after volunteering at the winter shelters which open from December through to January, all the guests who accessed the Pilion Trust Shelter Me Project left with safe places to go to, and nobody went back to the streets. There are 2 shelters in Islington which are part of the Pilion Trust Shelter Me Project (one at the Union Chapel which is an adult shelter and one at Caledonian Road Methodist Church, our youth shelter and crash pad). On January 1st at the adult shelter we cooked breakfast and did a final packing up and cleaning before closing up, while the youth shelter crash pad will stay open until funding runs out 🙂 .
Some of the guests at the youth shelter took part in creating this song too…all hoping and working towards good things in 2012 🙂
There’s a lot more information about the work done by the Pilion Trust (where half of any profits after covering material costs are donated) on the link for the Pilion Trust and World Homeless Action Day 🙂
