A Tour of Tabor House to present the cheque

On the evening of Tuesday 3rd July, a few of the liturgy leaders and one of the sixth formers, along with Mrs O’ Driscoll and Mr Miastowski visited Tabor House in Birmingham. Tabor House is a charity that offers support and shelter for the homeless. Currently they only shelter men but are planning to provide help for women in the near future. Whilst at Tabor House, we were given a tour around the building. We then handed over a cheque of over £500 for which they were extremely grateful.  We had previously given £500 through ‘Just Giving’ when the staff and students completed the Big Sleep.

Sue Nightingale who volunteers at Tabor gave us a tour and told us how the men have a mentor and part of their rehabilitation is to get a job and be independent.  They have a bed each and a large kitchen/dining area.  It was a lot bigger and cleaner than we expected.

Thank you to Suzanne O’Malley, our three-parishes co-ordinator for organising this and enabling us to go.  Thank you for letting us come and visit.  It is a worthwhile cause and I hope we get to fundraise again next year so we can keep helping homeless men and women in the future.

PS: Whilst we were there, the volunteers asked if anyone could donate small or medium men’s clothes that they have grown out of – especially Summer clothes.
