Dig Deep for Homeless Oxfordshire
We're putting our hands in our pockets, having a rummage and giving what we can - all to support the wonderful work that Homeless Oxfordshire do in our county.
But let's face it. There's more holes in our pockets than anything else. That's why we need you to Dig Deep for Homeless Oxfordshire!
On Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th October, we're going to be live for 12 hours a day at O'Hanlon House in Oxford's city centre for #DigDeep2019.
We want to break down some of the stigma surrounding homelessness and do what we can to help out our chums at Homeless Oxfordshire. Real people who are dealing with homelessness have shared their stories and journeys with us.
The number of rough sleepers in Oxford has increased 400% since 2012*. It's impossible to ignore the homelessness crisis that can be seen daily on our streets - not just here, but across the country.
Homeless Oxfordshire provides crucial survival needs, such as accommodation for over 200 people a night and serving up 75,000 meals every single year. Through 10 innovative projects, the charity delivers the person-centred support people need to recover from homelessness.
