Urgently needed: Men’s Clothing, Toiletries and Non-perishable Breakfast foods for


A collection of these items will be held during the period 28th June to 8th July 2024

Please ask your friends, neighbours and colleagues to help as well!

The Whitechapel Mission has helped the homeless in London since 1876. Today, it is recognized as one of London’s most effective homeless charities.  The cost of living crisis sadly means that the need continues to grow.

The charity provides showers, breakfast, lunches, training, advice and dignity to all who walk through its doors every day of the year.  Clients are mainly men, although there are also services for homeless women.

The aim of the charity is to transform lives from homelessness to hope by helping clients reconnect to family, commit to sobriety, find a job and place to live and to be able to plan for the future.

Entirely dependent on public support, the Whitechapel Mission always needs donations of clothing which is in good condition and suitable for street dwellers, toiletries and non-perishable breakfast foods.

This appeal is being coordinated by Godalming United Church, between 28th June and 8th July 2023.
