VAC SUMMER SHOWCASE EVENT

On 2nd August Cyrenians took part in the Summer Showcase organised by VAC (Voluntary Action Coventry).  Along with many other local charities we had a stall in Broadgate, Coventry City Centre. Despite the wind and the rain we had plenty of people visiting our stall. It was an ideal location to interact with members of the public who were very interested in the services we provide throughout Coventry and Stratford upon Avon.

Some people asked for advice about friends and relatives that have recently become homeless, some about our services for young people and others wanted to know what volunteering opportunities we currently have.

It was the perfect opportunity to liaise with the other agencies that attended, collect updated information/leaflets which may help our clients and shared ours with them.

We also had one or two ex-clients who came to our stall to say hello and express their gratitude for our assistance in the past and are doing really well in their accommodation that we helped them move on to, which was fantastic to hear!
