We just picked up a rather large (unexpectedly large!) donation from the wonderful people at Greggs Bakery! A big thanks goes out to them for their generosity. Take a look….
The scrumptious Burtons Biscuit Factory based in Cwmbran has made a fantastic donation of biscuits to our Fuzzy Feeling Charity Event. These will be packaged up with our other donations and taken down to the Huggard center over the weekend.
After massive success with their own charity endeavors raising money to help equip a new children’s heart investigation unit. They have turned their attentions to helping us out with our ‘Fuzzy feeling’ charity event, to help provide Huggard with supplies to help the homeless over the winter months. They have not only been in constant contact but have shown great enthusiasm and kindness, and have managed to blag some rather large donations from some great companies.
Thank you Streets Unplugged!
The Green Rooms needs you! This winter we have decided that it would be awesome to help people who are much less fortunate than ourselves, but we need you to help us with it!
We are setting up a gig on the 14th of December which will ONLY accept food/essentials donation for entry. We will then be taking our collected food and essentials parcel to Huggard Homeless Shelter who help to feed and house 150 people a day over the winter months. Here is a link to Huggard and what they do (click here). There will be more people out on the street than ever this year and giving a few small items can help them survive the harsh winter months.
We are not asking for money, only some essentials that are listed below.
Packets/boxes of biscuits/Cakes/mince pies/ Chocolates
Toiletries especially travel size (shampoo, showergel)
Tooth brushes and toothpaste.
Socks male and female
Although our main collection will be during the gig, we will also be collecting from NOW until the 1st December. So if you are having a cupboard clear out or can spare some bits and bobs in the list that would be awesome.
Rehearsing bands/band members of any band/anyone at all who pops in with some bits and bobs for the collection can have a picture of themselves on the front of our website with a bit of a blog about their band/themselves etc and we will happily wang it around social media sites for you, you can also have a warm fuzzy feeling this year that you have really helped someone in a time of need!
There will be a permanent box set up at The Green Rooms for donations from now on- so help us out if you can!
Further info about the gig will be coming soon! Event page https://www.facebook.com/events/116017428548418/
