On Thursday 25th November, Pip and Becca are joining with others to 'sleep out' at Eden project and raise money for St Petrocs, a homelessness charity in Cornwall.
St Petrocs provide accommodation, support, advice, training and resettlement services to people experiencing homelessness. They believe that for anyone facing homelessness, for whatever reason, there should be the care and support they need to help them.
Over the winter of 2020/21 St Petrocs provided emergency accommodation to 40 people, utilising 20 hotels and guesthouses across Cornwall for an aggregate of 937 nights. Only 25 per cent of our clients were in good health and 45 per cent had mental health problems. Personalised support resulted in 33 people not having to return to the streets. One St Petrocs client in his sixties, who has multiple health problems but still works six days a week, said after being found accommodation last winter: “I wouldn’t have survived if I had to sleep rough. I’d have froze to death.”
Well done, Pip! Xx
