A Worthing-based estate agency chain has announced that it will be supporting local homeless charity, Turning Tides, this Christmas.

Launched via a collaborative video, Jacobs Steel is appealing on behalf of the charity for a list of items that are urgently required for the local people sleeping rough this December. The items include:

· Edible – coffee, sugar, squash, juice and biscuits

· Clothing – men’s small waist jeans

· Miscellaneous items – anti-bacterial spray, bleach, toilet cleaner, toilet rolls, tea towels, sleeping bags. Bath towels, clean and unstained single duvets and pillows

Items can be donated at any of Jacobs Steel’s six West Sussex-based offices. Pat Barton, Managing Director of Jacobs Steel, said: “My fellow managing director, Matt Jacobs, recently took part in Turning Tide’s sleep out fundraiser where he spent 12 hours on the streets of Worthing armed with just a sleeping bag and some cardboard. It was a true eye opener for him so we decided that this year we would host an appeal to support the charity. They do outstanding work, particularly with the young homeless across the county so we knew we had to act. Our donation stations are now open and we are hoping that we can exceed the charity’s expectations with our collections.”
