Unfortuneality, this month we start with some sad news.
Due to the increasing running costs of a high street store, it’s with great sadness that we’ve had to announce the closure of HBH charity shop in Nailsea.
We want to thank Jackie Main and her team of volunteers for all of their hard work.
ON A MORE POSITIVE NOTE
We are incredibly pleased to announce that we have received full planning permission from Bristol City council to develop the new Spring Street site.
This is what we’ve been waiting for so we can now steam ahead ready for our move in April.

HOMELESS COLD WEATHER ADVICE
Due to the cold, wet weather, it’s been a tough few weeks for the street homeless of Bristol.
We all know how difficult it can be to keep warm at home in this cold weather. So imagine how hard it can be to stay warm when you’re homeless.
The average age of rough sleepers who died in the last five years was 43, around half the usual life expectancy in the UK.
In 2018, an independent report found that 78 homeless people died in the UK because of winter conditions.
These figures are shocking, but we believe that with the right action those figures can be significantly lowered.
