28th January 2019
Our volunteers braved the icy cold of Brighton Station from 06.30 - 19.00 on Monday 21 January 2019 to hand out teabags and SHUSH listening tips plus raise much needed funds for our branch. We spoke to 1,000 people, including 30 potential volunteers. We know that having a cup of tea can help break the ice and give someone a chance to talk to you about how they are feeling. People were very generous and we raised over £500. And we were especially grateful to a homeless person who had no money but insisted on giving us a bar of chocolate because "What you people do is amazing."
