They are asking for help from local business’ to help keep homeless people in Mansfield and surrounding areas warm and dry this Winter!
Please click to read the full article and find out how your business can help in just a few simple steps.
Our community is full of generous people who donate at this time of year to help those less fortunate.
However, after TurnerFox spoke with The salvation Army it seems that items such as sleeping bags are harder to come by.
It was estimated that approximately 78 homeless people died in the UK due to harsh weather conditions last year. So, it is incredibly important to provide those living on the street with waterproof, quality sleeping bags.
Therefore, this is why TurnerFox have decided to team up with The Salvation Army this year by gaining local business’ support to donate a sleeping bag to a homeless person. It’s such a simple way to make a huge difference to someone’s life.
As a thank you TurnerFox are keeping a live donation feed and will be entering all those that donate into a prize draw to win a Christmas Hamper.
They will be announcing the winner on Friday 20th December.
Why TurnerFox needs your help
It has been predicted that temperatures in the UK will plummet this winter. Colder than the 10 years previous.
Michelle Fox, Director of TurnerFox has said “we don’t need to see any more people in this area become a statistic, that’s why we desperately want to help as many people as we can. We need the Mansfield business community to pull together at this time to save the lives of those living on the streets”.
They have requested that the sleeping bags donated are waterproof/weatherproof, in case we experience any more heavy rainfall.
Turnerfox would like to make donating as quick and easy for you as they possibly can. That’s why they have published all the information you need on which sleeping bag to purchase and they will even come and collect for you from your office/place of work.
Here are 2 options that have been recommended:
Bessport Mummy Sleeping Bag – £48.99
Keen Flex Mummy Sleeping Bag – £29.99
For more information, head to their website!
Waterproof sleeping bags can be quite challenging to find, so TurnerFox have said they will be happy to accept any donations, but it would be great if they can be waterproof.
