Players Visit Crisis For Christmas

22 December 2017

Members of the first team and development squad visited the Crisis For Christmas London base in Bermondsey on Thursday afternoon.

Crisis at Christmas is a unique volunteer effort that provides immediate help for homeless people at a critical time of year. By volunteering with Crisis this Christmas you can make a real difference to people experiencing homelessness. They have lots of volunteering roles to fill. Help cook and serve meals, share your skills as a hairdresser, health professional or entertainer, or have a chat and play games with the guests.

50 years after Ralph McTell first penned ‘Streets of London’, the legendary singer-songwriter has re-recorded his timeless single with a choir made up of Crisis clients from across Britain, and guest vocalist Annie Lennox. The song - which shares its birthday with Crisis’ 50th anniversary this December, has been released this Christmas to raise money to support thousands of people facing homelessness this Christmas; many of whom would otherwise have nowhere to turn over the Winter months.

For a donation of £26.08 you can give someone who's homeless all this. 

• Hot, delicious, nutritious Christmas dinners for over 4,700 homeless people over nine days
• Advice on housing, benefits, finances, employment, as well as legal matters
• Healthcare, including TB and hepatitis screenings
• Dental treatment and eye tests, including glasses
• Hairdressing and massage treatments
• Learning and skills opportunities, internet cafés and IT workshops
• Specialist centres providing safe accommodation to rough sleepers, women and people with dependency issues
• PLUS access to Crisis’ year-round services for training and support in the year ahead.
