Transform in Woking has received donations from Sainsbury’s and the Salvation Army, to support its work with homeless and vulnerable people this Christmas.
The Woking branch of Sainsbury’s donated £50 to Transform on Friday 16 December. Store Manager Richard Hemus presented the cheque to Theresa Duckett, who manages The Crescent, a Transform hostel for young people in Woking.
Later that day The Crescent also received a donation of 44 bags of groceries and 44 Christmas presents from the Salvation Army. The gifts and food will be distributed to homeless and vulnerable people who are supported by Transform in Woking.
Transform provides homes for more than 70 people in the area, including homeless people, vulnerable young people who are leaving care, and people with mental health issues. Transform runs two hostels for vulnerable young people – Pound House and The Crescent.
