Help the homeless this Christmas

Sandra at The Swan says: "It's this time of year again when we start thinking of Christmas; we are collecting for the homeless and will be making Christmas Gift Bags up again.

Last year we did over 140 gift bags and gave them to the Samaritans this year we will be donating then to The Blonde Angels who do a huge amount of work for the homeless and help then get accommodation.

So this is where everyone can get involved; we are looking for donations of sweets, chocolate, biscuits, shampoo, shower gel, gloves, hats, scarves, men's and ladies' underwear (size small to medium for men and up size 12 for ladies), socks, razors, wet wipes and small gifts for ladies (possibly make-up) - gents' gifts too are always welcome.

Our target this year is 150 gift bags.

Also if you have any gift bags, wrapping paper, sellotape or anything at all that you think we can use, please drop it off at the Swan Thornbury!

The Swan Thornbury

Knit for the homeless

Our knitting group is running again on Thursdays, 2.30 to 4.30pm.

If anyone would like to join us, you don't have to be proficient, just someone who can sew items together, knit basic scarves etc.

We would love you to join us and what's more there's a free cuppa for everyone.

Last year we had a great bunch of people to help us knit for the homeless...

If you can't get here then you can always knit at home and drop stuff off or even donate any oddments of wool that you have lying around.

All your help is greatly appreciated.

Community Toilets

It means anyone can use The Swan's toilet facilities during normal opening hours, with no obligation to buy food or drink.
