Londoners urged to give at Christmas

Londoners are being urged to donate food, clothing, toiletries and other essential items at their local Safestore branch to benefit over 3,000 guests of Crisis at Christmas.

Crisis has joined forces with Safestore to collect items ranging from baked beans to roll-on deodorant, contained on a Christmas Wish List. Donations are being accepted across the capital before 11 December.

Gifts will be given out to guests at Crisis at Christmas centres, hosted in schools and colleges across the capital. The project provides warmth, companionship and services to help guests take their first steps out of homelessness.

Leslie Morphy, Chief Executive of Crisis, said: "We are fast approaching Crisis at Christmas and as ever we will be relying on the extraordinary generosity shown year in year out by the general public - the people who really make the project happen.

Dave Cox, Head of Sales and Marketing at Safestore added: “We are delighted to be able to support the renowned Crisis at Christmas campaign for the third year running.  It is such a worthy cause and by providing space and logistical support, we can help make it easy for members of the public to make their donations.”

The Christmas Wish List and details of how to find your local Safestore centre can be found on the Crisis website.
