Shabang Fire - Sanctuary Volunteers help renovate new venue.

In the early hours of Tuesday 23rd August  a fire broke out in the cellars of Shabang's beautiful building, The Watershed , (which ironically had just had a £70k re furbishment).

Terry, Pete and two staff from Sanctuary Trust were among some of the voluteers helping Shabang's Kim and Russ to set up a new venue for their invaluable work.

We wish Shabang and all it's patrons well over the coming months and although the building was insured the extra cost of setting up the new venue will need to be covered. You can make donations at this link - Donate

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.
