On Saturday 16th June, Worthing Churches Homeless Projects held their 17th annual flag day, The Summer Busk, in Goring, Findon and Worthing Town Centre.
Flag days are vital for raising money and awareness to support the wealth of services the charity operates to support the homeless.
Worthing Churches Homeless Projects would like to say a massive thank you to everybody who was involved, to Richard Amey the volunteer organiser of the event, David and all of the amazing performers from Shoreham All Stars, along with all of the brilliant entertainment from other performers including, but not limited to, RG Winfield Blues Band, 168 No Sleep (a 4-piece pop-rock covers band) and Junkyard Sons (a 6-piece original blues-rock band).
The town centre was alive with music and dancing as hundreds of shoppers enjoyed the entertainment. A fantastic £1259.74 was raised in Worthing, with the donations of £173.67 raised in Findon, bringing the total amount raised for the day to a superb £1433.41. The amazing volunteers for Worthing Churches Homeless Projects donated a huge 94 hours of their time on Saturday to helping raise money and awareness for the issue of homelessness and talking to the public of Worthing, Goring and Findon about the work the charity do.
Worthing Churches Homeless Projects recognise that homelessness is a community issue and so they work closely with volunteers, agencies and local charities to identify and provide relevant services in the communities they support. It is fantastic to see the public engaging with the charity and heart-warming to know they care about Worthing Churches Homeless Projects’ clients.
