Day 3 of ubu’s Unite@Christmas

Our third ‘Sparkle’ Event and the Homemade Cupcake and Biscuits Competition

Tragically a homeless young man passed away on 5 November in Leigh town centre. He was on his own, cold and lost, not knowing how to find help. It was a shocking story which touched the hearts of many people who live in the area.

Each year, people enabled to live with greater independence with support from ubu look for a way to bring happiness and ‘sparkle’ to the lives of other people in their own communities. ubu donates some money to enable the people we serve to find a way to make a difference to someone’s life or to help a group of people to achieve something special at Christmas time.

This year, a group of people we serve in Wigan decided that they wanted to make a very special hamper, filled with useful little luxuries for homeless people who are cared for and supported at The Railway Road Project in Leigh, near where they live. The Railway Road Project helps single homeless men and women to find a way to get on their feet again. They offer a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and provide somewhere for rough sleepers to stay so they don’t have to sleep out in the cold on the streets. There is a homely lounge and other facilities to help people find positive ways to socialise, meet others and talk about their problems in a safe environment.
