Christmas can be an incredibly challenging time of year for people cut off from family and home. For our charity this year LPP have chosen Crisis, a national charity for homeless people.
Crisis provide shelters, meals and facilities in London, Newcastle and Edinburgh. They also offer potentially life-changing services focused on health and wellbeing (including counselling), housing, education, employment and more. Crisis rely on a team of volunteers to put forward a special effort for 7 days around Christmas every year- a programme they refer to specifically as “Crisis at Christmas”.
LPP’s Managing Director Dr Phil Hopley is volunteering as a ‘befriender’ at shelters in West London this year. “A good friend has been volunteering with Crisis for a number of years. Listening to Jimmy talk about his time helping those less fortunate to enjoy a better Christmas has been my inspiration”.
