In January 2015, 300 Winter Warmer packs were distributed to homeless people across the UK. Each Winter Warmer Pack was worth £50 and contained a sleeping bag, winter coat, fleece jumper, hat, scarf, gloves, socks, toiletries and first aid items. Beta Charitable Trust works with Al-Mizan Charitable Trust to help fund the distribution of these packs across the UK.
On any given night in the UK, up to 2,500 homeless people sleep rough around the country and many of them risk dying on the streets this winter because of the freezing temperatures. With the help of hard-working volunteers, dedicated supporters and generous donors, we have been able to save the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in the community.
