Slough Outreach for the homeless
The secretary of LNF, Shin Dhother, has set out to make sure that the rough sleepers in Slough have a hot meal every night so they do not go to sleep hungry.
He has managed to coordinate a 7-day service to provide support and welfare to the homeless with the help of like-minded people and groups.

Night Shelter for the rough sleepers
Langley churches started welcoming guests on their Night Shelter programme,
managed by the London and Slough Run, on New Year’s day. As in the past, during
the months of January-March, the Anglican and Roman Catholic churches
will be providing a meal and somewhere to spend the evening and night for
homeless people who would otherwise have to sleep out in the open.
The number of guests tends to build up over the period and can be over 20 some
weeks. This year boys from Eton College, a different group each week,
accompanied by a Master, are spending Monday evenings with the guests as part
of their community service. Like everyone who volunteers at the Shelter
project, they are also finding it a rewarding and humbling experience.
