Addressing homelessness involves much more than putting a roof over someone’s head.
This year, St Petrock’s is running a “12 Days of Christmas campaign”, which invites the local community to help meet the wide range of needs people may experience on their journey towards a more settled way of life. Participants can either take on the 12 action challenges listed in the campaign or choose which need(s) they might like to support with a financial donation.
“This year, because of the continuing impact of the pandemic, many of our clients are requiring extra support in moving away from homelessness,” explains Lucy Patrick, St Petrock’s external communication manager. “We are very grateful to the local community for supporting our ongoing work with these vulnerable people by backing this year’s campaign.”
The campaign has been produced in partnership with Reanne Brice, a Graphics Design student from Exeter College, and invites people each day (or at their own pace) to either undertake the daily action challenge and/or raise funds for the featured need. We will be sharing challenge prompts via social media from 1st December, but people are welcome to get started at any time. You can keep track and join in on social media via the hashtag: #stpschristmas.
