Trinity Drop In for the Homeless
Since July 2013, on Wednesday evenings the Trinity Drop-In has been providing a good hot meal for homeless and other people of all ages that have been referred to us by LLHS. It is staffed by members of the congregation who have undergone food hygiene and safeguarding training, with a colleague from LLHS always present. The need for our services varies widely from week to week and we have served from 7 to 22 guests in an evening, not counting babies and dogs!
We have received some local authority grants and LLHS provide some basic groceries from their food bank but we rely mainly on generous donations from the Trinity congregation and others, both financially and in the form of food. Desserts are provided each week by members of the Trinity Fellowship Circle and our activities are underwritten financially by the Trinity.
WHILST OUR DROP IN OPERATES AS PART OF LEIGHTON LINSLADE HOMELESS SERVICE, ANY ENQUIRIES ABOUT THEIR EMERGENCY NIGHT SHELTER OR ABOUT OTHER DROP INS PROVIDING MEALS ETC ELSEWHERE SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO LLHS STAFF AT THE BLACK HORSE, NORTH STREET - TEL. 01525 381129 OR 07892 122429.
Luton Walk for Freedom
Luton's Walk for Freedom is taking place on Saturday 14th Oct, as part of a global movement with A21 to shed light on modern day slavery and human trafficking. Starting at Wardown Park at 10am we will be walking approximately 2 miles, slowly, silently, in single file, dressed in black to turn some heads. Everyone is welcome! Please register online at www.a21.org/luton-uk.
We aim to raise awareness of modern day slavery and human-trafficking, and raise funds for the charity A21, who do incredible work to end this terrible industry and to give hope and life to survivors. These crimes happen in Luton and the surrounding areas so we are walking to make a stand for those affected and say we will not let this happen in our town.
Together we can abolish slavery, everywhere, forever, one step at a time.
