Old Buckenham's help for homeless

Handing over the cheques

Representatives of the St Martins Housing Trust came along to the Church Rooms at Old Buckenham this morning. St Martins is a registered charity for single homeless people in Norwich and Norfolk. Each year they are invited to come along and collect cheques for the money that has been raised by various groups within Old Buckenham to support their continual work for the local homeless people.
The four cheques handed over today were for money raised from
  • the collection at the Christmas Eve carol service at All Saints Church,
  • from fund raising organised  by the Sainsburys store in Attleborough,
  • more fundraising by the Old Buckenham 2000 Trust
  • and money given at the many 'bucket collections' made at several local supermarkets over the Christmas period.
The total sum raised came to £18,090.74, an amount that St Martins Housing Trust are most grateful for and which will be put to very good use in helping to finance their activities in the coming months.
