    GIFT OF GIVING 

    We work with other local charitable organisations in Dewsbury, to help the homeless and the most vulnerable in our society. As part of this, we provide weekly hot meals for our homeless friends and anyone in real need. We also work with Fareshare and Tesco and collect surplus food from them which we drop off to our local partners who then pass this on to people in need.
