Lloyds Bank Foundation - 05-12-2016

Hinckley Homeless Group have been very fortunate in receiving support from Lloyds Bank Foundation to help us become sustainable into the future.

Vice-Chair Diana Morgan recently attended a Westminster Reception with other grantees to celebrate the success of small charities enabled by Lloyds Bank Foundation. It was an opportunity to draw MPs attention to the vital role played in society by small charities.

Sleep Out - 18-04-2016

A really big Thank You to Local Rock and everyone who took part in the Big Sleep Out on Friday night.

Trustees and staff from Lawrence House were really pleased to meet supporters and talk about the issue of homelessness and it was a great social evening.

But when we got into our sleeping bags on the concrete floor of the Rugby Club stand, only just protected from the pouring rain and cold wind, we found it really difficult to sleep. By the morning when we were cold and sleep-deprived I think we all appreciated just how very challenging it must be to be homeless, and it certainly underlines how important it is to keep Lawrence House open. Thank You also to everyone who has sponsored those sleeping out. The event has been a great success.

Well done everyone!

Diana Morgan, Vice-Chair, Hinckley Homeless Group
