New Tiglin bus to help homeless
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.
