Serving the Homeless in our Community

Part of our mission statement is to 'serve our communities' - so we wholeheartedly support the Morning Star Christmas Appeal for donations for the homeless in Salisbury.

Last year we filled the bin twice over - it'd be great to be able to serve the homeless and those in need our City again in 2016!

The toiletries, gifts and clothes people donate make such a difference to those who are homeless and vulnerable. If you are able to help us this year, Morning Star would really appreciate your support.
