Who this task will support
Barnsley Churches Drop-In Project
Providing a hot meal and support for the homeless, addicted and those in need.


We will be running to help Peter and his team at the drop-in project sort donated bags of items. Rucksacks full of food, clothing and hygiene products are donated to the project and stored in a lock-up. The items need sorting into categories for later distribution ,and the current staff at the centre don't have the time. This is where GG comes in. We'll be opening each bag and sorting items into designated crates (coats, gloves, hats, dry food etc). Alongside this we may also be making sandwiches and assisting with other tasks. It depends on the night.
