Chippenham fire station is donation point for local charity


Date: 22nd November, 2019

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is again providing a donation point for local homeless charity Alabaré at their Unity House service in Chippenham.

In the run-up to Christmas, people can take donations of new and good quality items for ‘rough sleeper’ packs to the fire station in Dallas Road, Chippenham.

Amongst the items being requested by Alabaré are sleeping bags, hand-warmers, toiletries, mats for laying on (exercise mats), wet wipes, socks, gloves, toilet rolls, hats and lip balm. Non-perishable food items would also be welcome.

Watch Manager Steve Lodge, from Chippenham fire station, said: “We always try and support this local charity as much as possible, and we’re well placed to take in donations from other people wanting to help those experiencing homelessness. We’re here seven days a week, so please do drop in items if you can.”

Naomi Webb, Service Manager at Unity House, added: “We are very grateful to Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service for their continued support and to those who donate via this scheme. Your donations make a real difference to those within your local community. Let’s together make this winter more bearable for those most in need of a safe and warm place to stay.”

Alabaré Unity House supports homeless people and rough sleepers in Chippenham and Wiltshire. They also offer a hub three times a week for rough sleepers to be able to shower, have a warm meal and company.
