Thankfully this winter has been mild so far, but we all know it will change, and for the worse!
This winter we have chosen to provide financial support to an individual who uses all of his spare time to help the homeless in Manchester.
Richard Evans dedicates a huge amount of his time and money to generously aid the men and women who have no choice but to sleep rough.
Often relying only on second-hand items, Richard has struggled to obtain the required items necessary to provide some relief from the harsh conditions the night has to offer.
‘We need waterproof gear; different sized boots, pop-up tents, warm winter socks and many sleeping bags,’ said Evans. “Printerland’s donation of £1,000 will make such a huge difference, it will also enable us to purchase the many items which are daily necessities such as toothpaste, disposable razors and deodorant’.
‘Many of these individuals are on the streets through no fault of their own. Stephen B lost his mother at six years old and his father was an alcoholic. He was taken into care and suffered abuse at the hands of his, so called, carers’.
‘With Printerland’s donation and the tireless help from some of my friends we can provide some comfort this winter’.
