Suzy Hudson is a volunteer from the Clock Tower Sanctuary and came to visit Varndean School today to talk to Turing Students about their services and what they do. She also came to collect the food and clothing donations that students have kindly given.
Suzy explained to the students that the Sanctuary is a day centre for Young homeless people aged between 16 - 25 years of age. The centre is open between the hours of 11am - 4pm, 6 days a week in which they can cook, have a shower, eat, relax in the lounge. use the computers and join in with activities such as women/mens groups, music, yoga, table tennis and much more.
Volunteers are of all ages and all areas of the community, providing a wide range of support and advice , such as Housing needs and Mental Health issues.
