Salvation Army Church opens its doors throughout the year to those who are in need or vulnerable

And this winter the church is calling on the public to donate warm clothes, tents and sleeping bags,

One man who attends the Bridges drop-in centre three times a week, said: “Without The Salvation Army, many of us here would be dead.”

The service is for people with drug or alcohol problems or who are homeless.

The drop-in, started by Captain Kathryn McLean at The Salvation Army’s church in Bicester, now runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays,

The centre also provides clothes, tents and sleeping bags – many of which are donated by those in the community,

As winter draws in, these donations are more essential than ever.

People can also collect food vouchers for the town’s food bank, have a wash, brush their teeth, and get advice on applying for housing and benefits, as well as help in beating their addictions,

To find out more or to donate to the drop-in, contact Captain McLean on 01869 369160.
