Clothes for the Sit Up Service

Today we made a further delivery to the British Red Cross in Nottingham for the ‘Sit Up Service’ being run by Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, British Red Cross Volunteers, Framework and Nottingham City Council Community Protection Officers. This is a scheme, thought to be ground-breaking in the country, where rough sleepers can access simple shelter at London Road Fire Station when the temperature drops. As well as a roof over their head, safety and warm food and drink, those using the service are given appropriate clothes supplied by ourselves.
