Help for the Homeless

The Charity Homeless Pembrokeshire has been able to purchase two special coats that make life a bit more bearable for rough sleepers thanks to a £1,000 donation from Persimmon Homes through the housebuilder’s Community Champions scheme.

The ‘roof coat bags’ offer protection from the weather and are also fireproof and stab resistant. Amanda Evans, the founder of the charity, explained what a lifesaver these coats are, which can protect people without shelter from freezing temperatures.

The charity expressed gratitude to Persimmon, which makes donations of up to £64,000 across the UK for a range of support, explaining what a difference this donation will make for those who face the cold weather in Pembrokeshire without a place to keep warm .

The aim of Homeless Pembrokeshire is to raise awareness of homelessness and to help those who become homeless.  It provides individual items and full emergency packs and also signposts venues providing meals, washing facilities, laundry etc.

The charity will also help those in need where it can with emergency food parcels and fuel payment and its Baby Bank.

Homeless Pembrokeshire is registered with the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA). Please contact Amanda C Evans directly if you are in need of assistance by phone, Facebook Messenger or via these websites:
