Ipswich Winter Night Shelter

July 2016

As a firm, and as individuals working at Prettys, we are committed to the communities in which we work and play an active role in them. We support and participate in a wide range of community projects and activities, most recently for Ipswich Winter Night Shelter. From 2nd December 2015 to 13th March 2016, Ipswich Winter Night Shelter was held at several churches in the Ipswich area offering food, shelter, security and company to those who were homeless this winter. The organisation has been running for six years now and has gained a fantastic reputation for its great work with the homeless, which focuses on finding a long-term solution to the issues faced by each individual during their time at the shelter.

Prettys sponsored the shelter and four members of Prettys team (Penny Gordon, Josie Beal, Lyndsey Squirrell and Melissa de Carvalho) volunteered their time to participate in the morning, evening or overnight shifts, after having initial training at the beginning of November. They found volunteering at the shelter to be a great experience and would highly recommend people to get involved next winter and/or get involved with the other wonderful charitable organisations in Ipswich that support the homeless all year round.

Thanks to the Ipswich Winter Night Shelter, 3 guests staying at the shelter have now found themselves their own accommodation.
