Arrangements for |Guests after Shelter closes

Sunday night sees our final shelter of the winter. Sadly, the weather has turned against us, and whilst we are not able to continue operating the shelter, arrangements have been made for our Guests as follows: all Guests have been individually assessed by Lesley, our Senior Project Supervisor, as to their particular needs. Arrangements have been made with the YMCA for certain of our younger Guests, and Hastings Borough Council has been working with us to identify accommodation for those Guests who are particularly vulnerable. Other Guests will be equipped with appropriate clothing, bedding and rucksacks for their belongings, and thermos flasks for hot drinks (hot water is always available at His Place), with the back-up of the Seaview Centre for nourishing and cheap meals during weekdays, and other identified sources at the weekend. As earlier this month, we will also liaise with Hastings Borough Council in their provision of cold weather accommodation should this be required.

The usual feedback arrangements for Volunteers will be advised soon, but it is worth stating at this stage that our many Guests this winter have been unanimous in their appreciation of all the support given by Snowflake, its staff and its team of Volunteers, and the Trustees extend their heartfelt appreciation to all concerned.

Change in the Trustee Board

After many years of dedicated service, inluding being a founder Trustee of the charity, Peter Bourner has decided to 'call it a day' and leave the Trustee Board. Everyone in the Snowflake family is indebted to Peter for his unstinting support over very many years, and we thank him for all he has brought to the charity and the night shelter in particular.
