From Thursday 28 October, money raised from the contactless giving points will contribute to a variety of support programmes run by The Bridge Homelessness to Hope from their Day Centre, aiming to achieve long-lasting change for vulnerable people in our community.
Crucially, the assistance offered at the Day Centre is not only for those without housing. They offer continued support even after guests are housed, enabling them to keep on making positive changes to their lives.
We will update the totals below to illustrate how much has been raised for the charity.

How is the money used?
The assistance offered at the Day Centre includes support finding housing, but crucially is not only for those without housing. They offer continued support even after guests are housed, enabling them to keep on making positive changes to their lives.
Give Leicester donations will benefit a range of the services the charity offer, including the provision of meals at breakfast and lunch time, a place for hot showers and laundry, and physical and mental health advice. Funds will also go in to creative and social programmes that aim to empower guests and allow them to feel part of a community, along with a regular skills day to prepare them to succeed in job-seeking and employment.
£3 can cover the cost of two breakfasts, three hot showers or one load of washing. A single £3 donation will allow one extra person to access art groups each day.
