Working alongside our new partners, Emmaus Glasgow and Turning Point Scotland, we will award grants to people recovering from homelessness in Glasgow.

Reaching out to those who need us.

  In recent weeks we have started an outreach operation and have moved onto the streets in search of rough-sleepers due to decreasing numbers at Cadogan Street.   Cadogan Street has been our base for a number of years now and with a few other homeless services nearby it seemed to be the best place…… Continue reading Reaching out to those who need us.

We thank the Celtic Foundation for carrying on the good work of Walfrid and co.

  “A football club will be formed for the maintenance of dinner tables for the children and the unemployed.”   The above statement was released after a meeting at St Mary’s Church Hall in the Calton on the 6th of November 1887 during which Celtic Football Club was officially created.   Today, the club continues…… Continue reading We thank the Celtic Foundation for carrying on the good work of Walfrid and co.

Merry Christmas and Thanks to Everyone.

This year…… Continue reading Peak Homelessness at Sleep Out in the Park.

  The murky Glasgow Action Group reared its ugly head again yesterday to demand the council “tidy the place up” and get rid of the homeless from Glasgow city-centre.   The group is led by the multi-millionaire James Mortimer and his wealthy cohorts including Donald McLeod, the owner of the Cathouse and Garage, and Kevin…… Continue reading Hands off our Homeless.

No More Jackets!

  Donations keep pouring in and we have had to take the decision to end our appeal and refuse anymore offers of clothing.   We only have so much space and there are only so any homeless people in Glasgow so we will kindly have to refuse any offers of help in the immediate future.…… Continue reading No More Jackets!

Thanks to One and All.

  Our winter jacket collection last weekend was a resounding success and we took in enough to last us at least a year.   As we have mentioned already this was organised by Michelle, who passed away last month, so making sure the collection went well was very important to us all.   The jackets…… Continue reading Thanks to One and All.

How We Roll

  Ahead of our winter jacket collection this weekend we thought we would take the chance to give you all a brief run down on how we operate.   As you probably know we visit the soup kitchens at Cadogan Street and look for rough sleepers and other vulnerable people who need help with clothing,…… Continue reading How We Roll
