Ashton Nazarene Church and our Champions team up to support Rochdale family

A mother of 10 children has visited our Storehouse; she had just moved into a three bedroom house and was looking for beds for 10 children! 

This lady had no funds and was in need of support from our Community Champions. 


Our Champions took her number and starting work finding beds.  But on this occasion, they didn't have to work very hard at all.Ashton Building

On the very day the mother came to our Storehouse, the Ashton Church of Nazarene called us up.  They have several bunkbeds they no longer have need for and asked if could make use of them.  Jackpot!  Our Champions worked out the logistics and before long all 10 kids had beds to sleep in. 

Massive thanks to the Ashton Church of Nazarene for donating the beds, and well done to the pass it on team and our Community Champions for making this happen.

This work is achieved thanks to the financial support of our generous donors.  If you would like to donate to our Storehouse or contribute to the general operations  of the sanctuary trust, please contact us [email protected] or call us on 01706 526722.

Verse of the Day

Sanctuary Trust works with homelessness and homeless related poverty and emergency homeless issues. God's Sanctuary was the vision of Sheila Halsall after seeing the level of homelessness Rochdale and later the homelessness Conwy and the substance misuse such as Drugs and Alcohol. By Providing emergency shelter for the homeless in supported housing services funded mainly through Supporting People we assist other providers such as Shelter homelessness, Petrus and Stepping Stones who are also supporting people through women's and men's hostels and floating support. We also have STEP Emergency overnight provision. With our work in Wales we partner with Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) as they provide financial help for homeless through emergency shelter and their Supporting People funds. There are different kinds of accommodation available but what is needed is good quality supported accommodation with a strong business and development plan. We have also provided consultancy service to help others move closer to an answer to homelessness. Our social enterprise company, Sanctuary Trust Enterprises runs Noah's Ark Play Centre, The Storehouse Charity Shop.
