A PROJECT that helps provide food and necessities to homeless people is appealing for donations ahead of winter.

Barnsley Churches Drop-In Project, based in Temperance House was founded in 2002 to help provide food to people suffering with addiction and homelessness across the town.

Each year they appeal for donations of winter clothing to donate to those who need it throughout the winter months.

A spokesperson for the project said: “As the nights get colder we're looking for specific items to support our rough sleepers and those who've been giving temporary accommodation.

“Second hand is fine and it doesn't have to be big name brands but it's nice to allow people with very little to feel like themselves especially when they don't have much. Most of our clients are under 40 and small or medium sizes.”

If you would like to donate, the items the project is in need of are:

  • Men's clothes – suitable for young men, and in smaller sizes and decent condition

  • Jogging bottoms

  • Hoodies

  • Coats

  • Trainers

  • Food which can be cooked using a kettle or camping stove (Pot Noodles, instant mash etc). The project already has plenty of beans and soup.
