Donate to support homeless people this winter

A local community organisation run by one of our academic staff is appealing for donations to support homeless people this winter.

Time-Matters UK helps children (between 5 to 18 years old) impacted by parental imprisonment.  The service helps to support whole families, including parents and carers in the community and parents who are in, or have been in prison. 

The local support service is run by Dr Lorna Brookes, Senior Lecturer in the School of Education.

The children would like to give something back and will work with the Whitechapel Centre to create gift bags for homeless people.

We are therefore appealing for the following donations, which can be dropped off at various locations across the university:

For children who are suffering homelessness we need:-

  • New pyjamas - all sizes
  • Advent calendars
  • Selection boxes

For adults who are suffering homelessness we need:-

  • New underwear (men and women) - small and medium sizes only
  • New socks (men and women)
  • Toiletry sets
  • Selection boxes
  • Gloves (any size)
  • Hats (any size)

Gift bags would also be appreciated.

Making a donation is really easy - please drop off your items at the following LJMU receptions from Monday 8 November to Wednesday 24 November between 8am and 4pm.

  • Student Life Building
  • Byrom Street (James Parsons Building)
  • Henry Cotton Building
  • John Foster Building
  • Exchange Station
  • Redmonds Building
  • John Lennon Art and Design Building
  • Tithebarn Building

If you have any questions, please email Dr Lorna Brookes.
