On the Order’s Feast Day of the Nativity of St John the Baptist, a box of “Coats for the Homeless” were presented to Christchurch Central Police Station.
The coats will be used for very vulnerable people on the streets of Christchurch of those being released back into the community with insufficient clothing. Discussions are underway for further funding of these coats in the future, the need for shoes for the homeless and a drug and alcohol detox facility for the city.
