This year the shelter’s capacity will double, meaning it can cater for up to 20 rough sleeping men and women.

The new project manager is Graham Doel and he is busy working on a new rota scheduling system, contacting volunteers and getting to know more about the project.

Existing and new volunteers will be invited to attend one of the following training sessions:

7.00 – 9.00 pm 9th October at St Michael at the North Gate, Cornmarket, OX1 3EY

7.00 – 9 pm 19th October at St Michael at the North Gate, Cornmarket, OX1 3EY
