As you may know, like many things, we have not been able to do our usual Breakfast Challenges at Whitechapel due to the pandemic but the Mission has remained open every day, with the staff manning the Kitchen to cook breafasts instead of daily groups of volunteers.  Over 167,000 free meals have been served since the Covid outbreak began and over 200,000 breakfasts since we were last in the kitchen last Christmas / New Year.  A free lunch wil be served each day over the Christmas period to everyone in need.

Can you help make Christmas Special for those sleeping on the streets this year?  In the lead up to Christmas, we thought we could help out in a different way since we cannot be there. 

The Mission are looking to make Christmas a little special for the hundreds of people who will come to the Mission over the Christmas period and suggest that a pair of new socks wrapped around a small bar of chocolate and then maybe wrapped in Christmas paper would be a suitable gesture.

Please, if you feel able to support this bring your gift ready wrapped (Please label ‘Male’ or ‘Female’ and put the size [of the socks not the chocolate!] on the outside wrapper) then either place it in the Box provided in the Post Office or deliver it to us or conatct us and arrange for someone to collect it and we will then get the gifts to Whitechapel for Christmas.  The Box wil be removed from the Post Office on 19th December.
