We need to spread the word about the new all night homeless cafe.

It is on the A30 in Camberley in the Scout Hut opposite the Arena Leisure Centre. It is open every night from 10pm through to 7.30am and offers a warm safe place for those who need to get out of the cold and get a nice hot meal and some company.
Please pass this info on to anyone who may need it or contact Josie Rawlings if you know where someone is who may need help.

Thank you all

We are looking to put together care packages we can hand out to local homeless people to help them through the freezing winter weather.
The items we need are as follows:
Sleeping bags
Blankets
Sleeping mats
Thermos flasks with cup/ bowl
Spoons
Cereal bars
Other easy to carry snack items
Tin soups
Tin meals ie breakfast in tin etc
Warm hats
Scarves
Balaclava’s
Gloves
Thermals
Underwear
Socks
Waterproof clothing
Warm sturdy shoes/boots
Reusable hand warmers
Warm clothing in general
Rucksacks

You can get a lot of these items cheap on Amazon or try local charity shops. Please contact Josie Rawlings if you have something to donate and we can arrange collection or it can be dropped off with Andrea Rimmer at the Old Dean Bowling Club, GU15 4BD between 9 and 5 day times or to the Scout Hut on the A30 Camberley from 10pm. Thank you .

    Just seen your link via Facebook – saw a guy yesterday drunk in Camberley and tearful. I was watching from my office and thankfully a couple sat with him for 2 hours. Sadly I saw him today sleeping in front of lidl in Camberley on the cold floor. Now I have your details if I see him again I will pass them on. Would love to help. I live in camberley and one night happy to help. My email is karenwilsonrd@yahoo.co.UK. I think you are just next to the traffic lights on the A30. Karen

    • HI Karen – thank you for your message. You need to contact the Overnight Cafe directly if you would like to help. If you look on their Facebook page or on the link, there is a phone number on there or call into the Scout Hut after 10pm. As you say, it is not good for someone to be sleeping out in the cold at night – I am sure the Overnight Cafe would love to hear from you. Kind regards Tina
