Drop In For Homeless Gets Award

award1An initiative which helps homeless people through its drop-in advice center has received a national award.

Hope Restored, which was set up four and a half years ago, has been named as a Community Project Award winner and received a £2,000 prize.

The project provides a place where homeless people can get a warm welcome, a hot meal and get their lives back on track. Hope Restored operates from Gloddaeth United Reformed Church in Llandudno twice a week and provides food to those that attend the sessions.

Brenda Fogg, project leader, was presented with the award at the United Reformed Church General Assembly and received a cheque for £2,000.

She said: "We're delighted to have won a Community Project Award and absolutely thrilled the positive impact of our project has been recognised.

"The prize money will be very useful as we are dependent on external funding to keep the project running."

"We're hoping to provide laundry facilities to our clients and also to replenish our stock of sleeping bags and tents for those that need them."
