The autumn 2018 grant programme was a huge success with more than £45,000 given to homeless causes. As part of our commitment to support these charities and show how every penny you donate makes a huge difference, we caught up with The Forge Project to update you on their progress. 

Fine & Country North Lincolnshire visited The Forge Project, their local homeless charity which received £3,000 for their winter provision project. 

The office visited The Forge Project in December to learn more about their work with the local homeless community. The £3,000 will be spent on vital supplies to help their service users endure the bitter temperatures: 

  • 50 cold weather sleeping bags
  • 50 heavy duty gloves
  • 50 cold weather hats
  • 100 pairs of thick socks
  • 10 packs of boxer shorts

The day centre works with homeless and vulnerable people, many of whom are suffering from mental and physical illness, addictions or are ex-offenders. Through a combination of immediate short-term support, such as the winter provisions above, and collaborative activities that target the root causes of issues, The Forge Project has made incredible progress in their community.

Find out about the other charities to receive grants from our autumn programme here.

To add to the Christmas spirit, the Fine & Country team collected a car-load of supplies for the Scunthorpe foodbank for our food parcel challenge to support the most vulnerable in their community. Fine & Country Northern Lincolnshire canvassed the streets of Brigg while their sister company, DDM Lettings, walked around Scunthorpe. Together, they collected trolleys full of essential items including: tinned meat, pasta, rice, hygiene products and more.
