box in the porch (Locking) and by the font (Hutton) for donations
for the Night Assessment Centre as they desperately need new
underwear (men’s medium and large size), new socks and
toiletries: shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste and brushes.
SOMEWHERE TO GO provides a safe, non-judgmental place for those
who need support, advice, a friendly ear and it has been a crutch

in their lives. Hot meals, access to a shower and medical help
is provided 3 days a week. We rely entirely on donations and
urgently require sleeping bags and funds. Please contact Mike
or Margaret Cooper in Locking if you can help (Tel 822408),
