Fund­ing boost for home­less char­ity

Evening Times - - NEWS -

A GLAS­GOW char­ity ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing care and sup­port to home­less, vul­ner­a­ble and so­cially ex­cluded peo­ple has been given a fi­nan­cial boost from a com­mu­nity fund­ing pro­gramme.

Lodg­ing House Mis­sion (LHM) has been awarded fund­ing from prop­erty man­age­ment com­pany Ross and Lid­dell through its an­nual com­mu­nity bur­sary scheme.

The fund­ing will con­trib­ute to­wards buy­ing es­sen­tials that LHP is in des­per­ate need of – this in­cludes men's un­der­wear, gloves, ra­zors, shav­ing foam and sham­poo.

Gus Smeaton, di­rec­tor of Lodg­ing House Mis­sion, said: "To con­tinue to op­er­ate we rely on char­ity do­na­tions and good­will from those in the com­mu­nity which is why ges­tures like this are so im­por­tant.

"The best we can do is look after those in need and that is our pur­pose."
