Toiletries Pic ‘n’ Mix for our homeless friends!

We're introducing a new toiletries Pic 'n' Mix bucket at our food stations. Homeless people often request small bottles of toiletries, and this is an often overlooked necessity for them. Homeless people have nowhere to store items and have to carry their belongings with them everywhere, so we will be providing travel and trial sized bottles wherever possible. Each item should last at least a couple of weeks, and they can pick up new items when they visit our breakfast stations.

#TeamBIAB get into the Season of Goodwill for the homeless at Christmas!

What is Christmas without mince pies, plum pudding and Christmas crackers? The Breakfast In A Bag team have two Christmas events to organise for the homeless at Christmas - our Christmas Event on the 16th December and our Christmas morning food station, where we will be serving omelettes, sausages, tomatoes, and hot drinks with Christmas songs and cheer. As always we rely heavily on the generosity of supporters, local business and big brand names to help us to help as many homeless rough sleepers as possible. It's never easy to ask for money or donations and more so at a time when everyone is planning and budgeting for Christmas. But we're not prepared to let our homeless friends down at any time, least of all during the Season of Goodwill, so we have been asking anyway! And what a great response we're having!

150 extra hot drinks EVERY TIME thanks to Kingdom Coffee!

How many cups of hot water can we get out of a 20 litre urn I hear you ask? Well, thanks to this kind donation from Kingdom Coffee we can provide around 150 cups extra each session just from this urn alone. Kingdom Coffee have not only donated this wonderful urn, they have also donated a big box of tea, coffee, sugar sticks and paper cups! The logistics of providing Breakfast In A Bag means that donations such as these help us to help more homeless people access warming and sustaining beverages than ever before.
