New Tiglin bus to help home­less

Bray People - - NEWS -

TIGLIN Re­hab Cen­tre this week of­fi­cially launched a new out­reach bus which will help peo­ple who are liv­ing on the streets in Bray, Dublin City, Bal­ly­mun and Dun Laoghaire.

Vol­un­teers come on board the bus on week­day nights to hand out tea, cof­fee, sand­wiches and pas­tries to the home­less and it also acts as a place for those strug­gling with home­less­ness in Bray to find out more about Tiglin’s ser­vices.

The bus was of­fi­cial- ly launched by RTE’s Ryan Tubridy who said: ‘I was par­tic­u­larly moved when one of the grad­u­ates from Tiglin told his story to me on ra­dio and men­tioned the good work Tiglin do. The bus is a great idea and it re­ally is won­der­ful to have a ser­vice like this on the streets to pro­vide it to those that need it.’

The new bus was pur­chased with the help of Sales­force Foun­da­tion, Lions Club mem­bers and the gen­er­ous per­sonal do­na­tions of many in­di­vid­u­als.
