Many of us look forward to Christmas as a time to spend with family and friends, where we gather for gifts, dinners, games and all else which fills us with joy. There are of course those less fortunate and it’s important that they aren’t forgotten and left out this Christmas.
The Society of Will Writers has for 15 years now supported The Nomad Trust, part of YMCA Lincolnshire which provides emergency access accommodation for those who are homeless. A tradition started by Brian McMillan, initially donating yule logs and other sweet treats for Christmas, the Society’s annual food drive has expanded greatly over the years with support from staff and partner organisations to include fresh fruits, meats, juices, and a variety of other goods to help Nomad through the Christmas period.
This year Sam Smith and Libby Robinson from the membership team had the pleasure of making the drop-off at their night shelter in Lincoln city centre. Commenting on the delivery Society Director Anthony Belcher said,
The Nomad Trust do an excellent job all year round and during these unprecedented times with the pandemic, it’s especially important that we provide what support we can for the homeless. My team and I are particularly keen to keep up with these donations and continue supporting Nomad for years to come.
The Society of Will Writers wishes everyone at The Nomad Trust the very best this Christmas, and thanks you deeply for all you do for the people you help and support.
