Some support for the homeless

When the weather is wet (as in this picture) or cold (as in recent days) it must be very hard for those who live without shelter on the streets of Lancaster. Their main source of support is the Lancaster and District Homeless Action Service (LDHAS), which was founded by local churches in the 1980s, and provides a day centre all year round and a night shelter over the Christmas period. During Advent Cathedral parishioners donated money for this service at the end of Mass, and we were pleased to be able to send a cheque for over £640 to support the work of the Homeless Action Service. The LDHAS website, which can be found here, gives more information about their work.
