Winter Night Shelter Milton Keynes 2018

Remember the cold winter of 2010, the snow, the bitter chill?

Well just over the last few days end of February/early March 2018 we have experienced that same ice cold winter reminiscent of 2010. The very reason the WNSMK was indeed formed was to provide supervised overnight accommodation to homeless and vulnerable people who would otherwise be rough sleeping during the extreme winter months of early December and and mid-March each year. They work in partnership with several Milton Keynes churches that provide their facilities free of charge. A large team of volunteers from across the city come together to cook nutritious meals and provide a friendly safe environment each evening.

Last year 1st Financial Foundations raised money to support the shelter. This year one of our team members volunteered to help out hands on and experienced first hand the good work both volunteers and long term supporters of the shelter provide.

“Its eye opening, no one can quite imagine what it must be like to live on the streets, no hot running water, no tv or mod cons… no privacy or choice.”

The True Value of Protection

The True Value of Protection

Many people think of wealth as the value of their savings, investments and assets. However, the ability to keep earning an income is equally important.

Ensuring that you have adequate financial protection for you, your family and any dependants is an important element of financial planning. As a healthy working person with a good income, you may feel reasonably confident that you are able to provide for your family. However, your finances could be more precarious than you think.
