At this year's Christmas evening event, our annual charity raffle will be supporting Crisis, one of the UK’s leading homelessness charities ( As the cost-of-living crisis continues, more and more people are being pushed to the brink and into homelessness. 

Crisis work directly with thousands of people experiencing homelessness every year. They provide vital help so that people can rebuild their lives and are supported out of homelessness for good. They offer one to one support, advice and courses in 12 areas across England, Scotland and Wales. How they help someone depends on their individual needs and situation. It could be with finding a home and settling in, getting new skills and finding a job, or help with their health and wellbeing. They also use research to find wider solutions to homelessness and campaign for the changes needed to end homelessness for good.
