Christmas fundraising update
Over the last few weeks, we have been very generously supported by our friends at Tickety Boos https://tickety-boos.business....,Dundee United https://www.dundeeunitedfc.co.... and Club 83 https://club83united.com/
These very kind donations have made such a meaningful difference in the lives of those who use our services. Christmas can be a difficult time for those who are homelessness, tackling substance use or facing mental health distress. and these donations will help buy small gifts, which often mean so much. It shows that they aren't forgotten and people in the wider community care, even in these difficult times for everyone.
Ryan Murphy (Support Co-ordinator) with our Housing Support Team organised a Quiz Night at The Occidental on Friday 8 December; there was music by Connor & Brooke a raffle and keen contested quiz. Attendance exceeded our expectations and it was a great opportunity to have a bit of fun and raise money and our profile.
These activities and the donations have raised over £1,500.

Unfortunately, it also demonstrates that many of the issues we were tackling 25 years ago remain
