This Christmas, along with several others, we shall be providing for the Christmas dinner at the Salvation Army Blackpool Citadel, which is organised by their 'Bridge Project'.
The Bridge Project supports the most vulnerable adults in Wyre and Fylde communities. This often means they are homeless, suffering from addiction or impoverished. To do this they organise drop-in sessions where people can get meals, toiletries, bedding and other basic necessities. They work with the NHS to provide health checks, they help people to get into accommodation and to resolve personal difficulties, such as addiction and mental illness. They also deliver education programmes, with the aim of moving people from crisis into more settled circumstances. On Christmas Day this year, they will be providing Christmas dinner for seventy disadvantaged people in Blackpool.
The Bridge Project receives no government funding. In order to deliver this indispensable service, it therefore relies on generous donations and volunteers. At this time of year in particular, their work is crucial in lifting the spirits of thousands of less fortunate people in our community. We encourage you to take a look at their website and Facebook page to learn more about the vital work they do all year round.
