News: Let’s Do Laundry!

Hooray, we've raised £25,000!

Thanks to many generous donations, both large and small, we have reached our target, and raised £25,000 to run The Connection’s Laundry and Showering Services for this current year. A huge thank you to all our donors!

You can read below how much difference this will make to The Connection’s clients.

One of the most degrading things about being homeless is that you and your clothes get dirty and you have no way of getting clean. At the Connection, we believe that giving people a clean start is a vital step towards rebuilding self-respect and helping them to think about starting on the pathway out of homelessness.

The laundry and shower services are a central part of what we offer. Here, people can wash themselves and have their clothes and sleeping bags washed and dried. In addition, all blankets, towels and bathrobes used at the centre have to be washed every day.
