Swansea-based Peter Lynn and Partners are proud to help the homeless in Swansea this Christmas by continuing their support of The Rucksack Appeal Swansea.

Coordinated by Paula Stockley (who founded the appeal), the initiative aims to provide Rucksacks filled with essential items to hand out to anyone who finds themselves homeless or rough-sleeping in the City.

“Winter is a particularly difficult time for homeless people,” said Paula, “and we are doing everything we can to support vulnerable rough sleepers this Christmas.”

Each Rucksack will include a hat, gloves, scarf, toiletries, a hoody, socks and a selection pack as well as sleeping bags, and other essential items.

The appeal, which has been running since 2016, provides rucksacks for both the summer and winter months to local homeless people through venues such as Matt’s Café, Zac’s Place and Ogof Adullum.

“We normally donate approximately 20-22 winter rucksacks and 40-50 summer rucksacks,” said Paula, “however this December, we are aiming to provide over 100 rucksacks which will be donated on Christmas Day by Matt’s Cafe.”

Since the start of the appeal, fundraising activities have been vital in order to raise money to purchase the items for the bags and is how Peter Lynn and Partners got involved.

“Paula first approached us to donate to the appeal in 2017, and I am proud to say, we have continued to donate to this extremely worthwhile cause every year since,” said senior partner Peter Lynn.

With the fundraising still ongoing, Paula is encouraging anyone to donate as much or as little as they can through her Justgiving page:
