You can’t help but notice the homeless around the city. You’ve only got to walk between the shopping centre and the station and you’ll encounter at least half a dozen people sleeping rough. This is an issue that we can’t ignore.
I do hope you can join us, with Steve Wilson from Match of the Day as our MC, and help support a great cause here in the local MK community.

Winter Night Shelter MK
Winter Night Shelter MK provides warm, safe and friendly accommodation for the homeless in the coldest months of each year. The scheme runs annually between early December and mid-March, providing a hot meal, a bed and breakfast to approx. 15 guests per night. Volunteers interact with the guests during their stay, engaging in a variety of activities including games, films and quizzes.
Since they started five years ago they have hosted 320 guests, provided 3,587 bed nights, served 7,174 meals and helped 165 people move into longer term accommodation.
The charity also funds a welfare officer to work with those affected by homelessness. They help to rebuild their lives by signposting drug and alcohol support services and by helping individuals to find accommodation and work.
