Crown Bedrooms are proud to be supporting the 2016 Rucksack Project
This is the 4th year of The Rucksack Project, which is organised by The Wellspring who provide practical assistance, advice and support for the homeless. Whilst they provide this support for 365 days of the year, the Rucksack project focuses on the more extreme effects that winter brings for the homeless
Crown Bedrooms are offering drop off points for any donations, no matter how small. Especially if you are clearing out your wardrobes for your new installation, you could consider items to donate that you may be disposing of.
Ideally a completed rucksack can be donated, but we understand that it is not always affordable to provide a full pack. You could visit charity shops or rummage through your wardrobes, or ask friends to donate.
If you wish to donate any of the items listed below, then it will be much appreciated
You can drop your donations to any of our 3 showrooms and we will organise getting them to the Wellspring for you, who will then make up the Rucksacks and distribute to the homeless. Our showroom addresses can be found on our website:
If you wish to donate a completed rucksack pack then this is what they hope it can contain:
1 x Rucksack
1 x Fleece / Jumper/Jacket/Coat
1 x Hat / Scarf / Gloves
2 x Socks
2 x Undies
1 x Toothbrush/Toothpaste
1 x Sleeping bag
1 x Flask
Tins of beans / Soup etc (with ring pulls)
1 x Spoon
Crossword puzzles / word searches / pens
However individual items are most welcome
PLEASE NOTE: It is not just men that are homeless and in need of our help so If you wish to provide a ‘ladies pack’ but please pin a note clearly stating ‘LADIES’ so that we can distinguish and give out accordingly.
Let’s make a difference to help the Homeless get through this winter
