Winter Night Shelter Milton Keynes 2018

MK_in_snow

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.”

Lifetime ISA – What you need to know

Launch date is 6 April 2017

 

The new Lifetime ISA launch date is 6 April 2017. It will be a no-brainer for first-time buyers as the government will add a 25% bonus on top of what you save – this means there will be £32,000 of free cash. For retirement savings it works the same way, but whether it beats a pension or not is a much trickier conversation. If you would like to assess the options available to you, please contact 1st Financial Foundations for further information on 01908 523 420 or email info@1stff.co.uk
